The players will not win, and they are not trying to win, they are just trying to keep the loss to a bearable level. It's simply a matter of how much the owners want to win by, and by the way negotiations have gone so far, they are looking for a home run. If you think the players are being ridiculous for actually taking a stand and refusing to be bent over, you might need to re-evaluate the way you think.
    Hey buddy, Money talks...******** walks!

    Owners got the $$$, take a financial risk with their own money for profit. They pay the players millions of dollars and if the owner ends up losing money.... they still get payed.

    If the players are so greedy they can go play in the KHL where they will get payed more...

    Both sides are greedy so I don't think that's the issue.

    The issue is mismanagement. Everything about the way the NHL has run this lockout (1 of 3 on Bettman's watch) has been botched. It's a PR disaster for the league because what the players are saying is actually plausible: Bettman is a major idiot, a contract IS a contract, and the league mismanaged the cap they won in the last lockout. It's actually unbelievable how many times the owners want to **** up and come back saying, could you please make the CBA more idiot proof for us? Otherwise, we'll lock you out for a few years. None of it makes any sense. I just wish the league would fold and another would start up. This has become a tired joke.

    I do agree, the league needs new management asap. After the first lockout I lost a lot of interest in Hockey, it slowly got built back up but I didn't feel like the NHL cared about its fans.

    Now this is a second huge blow to me, I don't know how I'll feel about watching my ****** leafs after a stupid lock out like this.

    I just don't think the NHL is worth defending. Let it die.

    If ownership is stupid enough to let Bettman run the league into the ground, let the damn thing die.

    Hockey won't die. It'll come back if there's a market. If not, sayonara. An idiot ran it into the ground because he didn't understand it.

    It'll still be played in every location that hockey BELONGS in.

    Talks to resume tomorrow. Could it be that the Bettman is a member of PSD and reads our posts?

    It's both sides. People need to realize that. The players are just as greedy as the owners. They're not the "little guy" in any sense.

    The fact that either side thinks a two week "break" of not talking, while they're barely talking as is, is the problem. One side needs to say no to that. In the end, they'll both say it's a good idea.

    If this ends in a year being lost, you can bet your *** the players are just to blame as the owners.
    fukken lol what is this relativism-level horseshit argument? The players have gone out of their ****ing way to make concessions but because the owners won't get 100% what they want, they're not agreeing. The owners are acting like petulant 10 year olds that are mad they're getting 80% of what they want.

    Bettman saying "let's take a two week break" is literally him saying "let's see how high and mighty y'all are after you miss another paycheck, SUCKERS". The owners are scum and they're getting frantic that the PA finally has a good negotiator that isn't just collapsing like the last time.

    How's this for a major concession? The players agreed to go to 50/50 immediately, but the owners still ****ing balked because GOD FORBID THEY HONOR THEY'RE ****ING CONTRACTS.

    he important thing to remember though is it's just about 8 owners forcing this ****. MOst of the other owners are really not as involved as the scum driving this whole thing.
