Roenick might be a moron, but he's no idiot (there's your Yogi Berra-ism of the day). The WHA can't pay him more, and if there is a lockout it would be for the better for him not to play given his health. It's just talk, but it's not cheap... IF other big name players (let's not get into whether or not JR is a big name player, he is in the eyes of the media and that's what matters for this point) start taking his stance, it *could* put some pressure on the CBA negotiations. I doubt it, but it's not out of the realm of possibility.
