I honestly don't see Leipold as being hypocritical at all.

1) When he was talking about the teams losing revenue in the famous pre-lockout interview, yes, he was talking about the Wild (they were losing money), but he was also talking about the league in general (where some teams were losing a lot of money).

2) He signed Parise and Suter to the contracts THEY wanted. He didn't want those contracts. But he did what he had to get them. Who does want their owner to do what he did.

3) Lock-out wasn't about clawing back contracts already given no matter how much the players thought it was. It was always about future contracts. It only got to current contracts because Fehr caused half the season to go bye-bye, costing the league and players to lose a lot of revenues.
