The way the players can look at it is: They can collect one a day for a golden egg to be laid or kill the golden goose today.

The market structure will work itself out. If CBA does not change, in the next few years, you will see contraction of teams like CAR and PITs and unfortunately further down the road, the canadian teams. In doing so, fewer jobs positions for players and guys that are paid $1M like Laraque will no longer have a job but selling groceries at IGA. They will all contemplate what a stupid thing it was to kill the golden goose that day.

I agree man! They are SOOOOO stupid. Although, I think they are just spouting off some of this crap for nagotiation reasons. They don't want to present anything but a tough hardline by the PA. But any fourth line player with a brain will realize the potential to lose their job if things don't chance and they will be against what the NHLPA is doing.

But therin lies the problem...

Say 9 teams contract (which is probably more than there actually will be), that is 1/3 of the players.

If I am in the top 1/2, I really don't care because I will still have a job.

Just like with the owners, there is a split in the players association... unfortunately, it isn't enough in the favour of those who will lose their jobs...
