Go and read some alternative views on things and open your mind up. Don't just automatically assume it's about greedy players because it's not:

Feel free to read Time Magazine's take on it where they verbatim agreed with what I said: http://business.time.com/2012/12/19/...e-nhl-lockout/

You folks stating that the NHL is proposing revenue sharing above other leagues have no idea what you're talking about. You have only the NFL to see how a successful league applies real revenue sharing to prop up it's franchises.

The owners got pretty much everything they wanted last time around, they got the players to turn on their own leadership and yet here we are... again. What makes you think it's going to be different next time?

But no, let's keep the same broken system that leads to a strike or lockout with every renewal...
ummmm i hope you do realize that the nfl's tv deal alone covers basically the nhl's entire revenue's right?
