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.
Players still lost 600M in wages. I wouldn't call that winning since imo they could have got the current deal back in november (and a full schedule).
