But to lose the entire season when they've come this close to reaching an acceptable compromise to salvage the season? It would be the ultimate blasphemy. They are playing with fire right now and I don't think they understand how much long term damage they will be doing to not only their own pocketbooks but to the future health & viability of the league as a whole. There are no winners with a cancelled season. Everyone loses. I hope they realize this before it's too late.
they didnt realise this during the last lockout, why would they learn this now... NHL needs new management that cares about the sport, the fans and the players, not just bucks..... if Bettman doesnt know why he gets booed, hopefully he will know by now.. not all of his fault but he has to take some of the blame...
