The bottom line is that at this point, who's to blame for the current state of the game is irrelevant. Although the two sides seem to do a lot of that, along with silly posturing. (Like JR's, 'we can outlast the owners, we''ll just go play in Europe' remark.) But it's all pointless. If fingerpointing and empty rhetoric were solutions to the game's problems, the NHL would have achieved fiscal utopia long ago.

They all have the obligation to fix it, regardless of who broke it. Both sides are going to have to make concessions and compromises. The survival of the league depends on it. A work stoppage would be fatal, a lot cities cities out there would quickly come to realize that they could live without the NHL.
