Once again arrogance being the key word in this issue! The owners think that since the league recovered so well after the last work stoppage, they can turn around and do it again. I seriously doubt they will, and being a passionate hockey person, hope they never recover if they try this nonsense again.
I fully agree with this I am sure some of the more respected owners such as our own Mr. I aren't happy with the way, this is going. Minime needs to be fired and if teams can't survive with revenue-sharing well either spend less, relocate or fold em.
A league with 20 profitable teams is berr than one with 30, were at least 10 are losing money.
Minime and his *****.... are seeing $ in their eyes again they think playing hardball with the players/fans will again get them, what they want. Glad Fehr has the job he will play hardball too, for months we have heard how the NHL is breaking record after record and now players should give in again? This is ludachrist and in my mind Buttman should be help accountable.
I think I will watch SEL, AHL and maybe some other "lesser" leagues if there is another lockout, no way I'll stop watching hockey. Hope the fans will side with the players and not come back if there is indeed another lockout, so the NHL won't pull this s*** again in 5 years, sorry for swearing but it is frustrating as a fan.
