This is how a team works. You go to battle together and each guy has the other guy's back. Unless one of the guys feels he's better of different. Word and opinion travels fast in the small confines of a locker room.
I think it was Iginla who was in a contract dispute back in the late 90's. He paid his own insurance to go and train with his team mates.

Talk about a team first guy! PK could learn a couple of things from Iggy.
