I think it is funny when players say stuff like this. It is like they have no idea what is going on.

And many business owners go bankrupt because of bad management decisions. In fact, aren't some of the league's troubles due to such bad decisions?

That list will be too extensive.

They should hide their identities. That would make for good TV at the least.

I hope this meeting isn't just to "educate the players on the plight of the owners" as much as it is being touted. I feel like the owners would be wise to hear out the players as to why they're so reluctant to believe the owners, and remain reluctant to move in their direction. I feel like the more the owners talk, the less productive this meeting will be.

Sort of like a Parent telling their kids why they are wrong.

@Real_ESPNLeBrun: League source says NHLPA was informed it can have as many players as it wants in the room today. No limit.

He graduated with a Degree in History.

Not sure why anyone is excited about this meeting. No one in the room has the power to change anything. the 24 people in that room could agree on everything but that doesn't mean the other 700+ involved will, mainly Bettman or Fehr. Only thing that would make this exciting is if there is a deal in place and this is just the curtain lift...doubtful.
