Probably sleeping.. It's pretty late..

It just goes to show the REAL LIFE mentality of a player signing a contract. They don't think of it as 5Mill over 5 years.

they think it's 25 milllion guaranteed no questions asked.
I play like crap.. 25 million.
I play like a horses ass... 25 million.
mine... contract.. mine.. signed contract.. mine

The second they sign.. that's they're money in wallet regardless if they even give .0000001 percent of an effort to sign it.

The players treat all contracts as one big giant signing bonus.

That's why Getllaf took a giant friggin crap in the woods last year. and that's just 1 example. Not singling him out because there's many more players guilty of the exact same thing.

Oh please, what did he say that was incorrect? Yes, being an emergency worker is a brave profession, and he's not denigrating them. He didn't even bring them up.

I have a much better shot at being a cop then a pro hockey player. I can't even imagine the hard work and dedication it takes to be an elite player like he is. Both work hard, both deserve respect.

He is wrong in saying that the owners want 25% of his salary. They don't. They have said there'd be no rollbacks but Coutures future earnings are not going to be what he'dbe hoping for with a new CBA.

I hate it when professional sports people making millions a year complain. They chose this profession and knew what they were letting themselves in for with regards to travel etc. so no point in complaining.

Didn't the SJ Sharks owners have a cash call this past season to make up loses?

Have the NHL owners reached into his bank account and taken 25% of his wage?

They may have reduced his ability to earn money in the future but I seriously doubt they've taken money from him, thus he had said something incorrect

Too funny, all support the owner fans want the players to shutup, more than likely because it shows the players support the union stance.

If players were tweeting "I want to play" I can just imagine the people calling for them to shutup would be singing a different tune.

Not really. We'd still tell them to shut-up. I think Derek Roy took care of that for us LOLOLOLOL

I wonder how many relationships are being destroyed by stupid tweets by these guys, or by guys like the wings management guy who called the players cattle?

Was there an increase in the number of players signing with different teams or asking for trades after the last lockout? Nothing is ever 'just business', it's always personal.

Because with the offers that Fehr has given the league they really can't say that can they?

No but it's evidence that the players are being mislead by PA leadership. I would like to be a fly on the wall when Fehr has a conference call. I could just imagine the crap that he must sling.

I think think his website is WWW.B.S.com.

the truth is Bettman has done more to unify this union than Fehr.
Lemmings are unified too - right before they head over a cliff.

Wait until his kids (If and when he has kids) grow up. He's gonna wish they only want the 25% in his wallet.

As much of a hockey fan as I am I think that cops and firefighters do more for us than pro athletes. These emergency professions have more of my respect than whiney millionaires.

And if the owners were tweeting this kind of crap we'd hopefully be saying the same things about them.

Now I'm beginning to understand Bettman's gag order on the owners.

Where is LC spouting this 25% figure. Isn't the number 12.3% with a portion of that being covered with the "make whole" scenario?

With a 1/4 of season gone now... I guess the 25% number is accurate.
