"The numbers are what they are, but this deal has all been about how much we’re going to give up, not what we’re going to get, and to go to their numbers and then for them to turn around and fudge what the numbers are going to be.

“It’s just ridiculous, expecting to get a deal done with these people that are trying to pull the wool over your eyes.”

“I don’t know if they were hoping we weren’t going to pick up on it or what, but I don’t know what the right word is…I’m appalled that they would try to get something like that in there under the system we have."
Its so hard to take either side when crap like this comes out.

The NHLPA (Fehr) have been absolute morons when it comes to showing up late, telling us a deal was pretty close, and all around toying with us, and the players have been so pathetic on twitter that its impossible to like or trust the PA at all.

Up until yesterday i thought the owners were the good guys, but seeing how once the NHLPA did something positive and showed they're starting to trust the NHL by not filing, the NHL goes and tries to take advantage by completely changing the tone of the negotiations and trying to pull the wool over their eyes when the threat of desertification is gone.

There is no good guy in this fight, just two groups of absolutely pathetic millionaires and billionaires who don't give a damn who they are hurting, and clearly have no desire to please the fanbase.

If there was any hockey alternative, i would love to spend my time and money there... these greedy *******s don't deserve another dime of our money.

Its so absolutely infuriating.
