What stuck out at me is this part:
NHLPA special counsel Steve Fehr told a panel in Toronto on Monday that three issues remain to be solved between the owners and players: the split of money, player contract rights and who pays for the damage caused by the lockout
I think that means they want owners to go into their personal bank accounts and pay out the full season's salary to players. Not going to happen. I mean. Haha.
The prospects of hockey any time soon are pretty grim. I know I'm not counting on it.
I think a couple of comments signal people's perception. A guy who sticks up for the players got a -108 so far. And someone who wrote he has no sympathy for Crosby who's to make $8.7 million to play a game this year, +106.
I don't get a guy like Crosby. He is willing to lose 8 or 10 million for this season (whatever he's to make), to make how much extra over the next several years with a new CBA? Well, maybe not willing. He's risking it. Because the Fehrs want owners to pay up for any damage caused. The PA has a couple of bozos running things. Just my opinion.
Sid, if you're reading this. WTF.
