Players Win Another Lockout

So the owners squeeze the players yet again and then the players get a cap the same as this past year. They don't lose a year of free agency or have 5 year ELC's but are limited to 7 year contracts which likely only 5% of the NHL contracts exceed anyways. So after all this pathos, the cattle get what they want. The owners also carry all the risk that their lockout killed the game as the players get a guaranteed cap in the year following the lockout.
What did we learn:
Gary Betman is like a plague of locusts, Jacobs is a snake on a ladder and Daley should stick to watching Miami Dolphins football and leave hockey all together (BTW:why is this guy on the Hockey Hall of Fame committee, seriously?) Finally, we learned that the cattle drive the bus.
