This biker's opinion:
The players have lost touch with reality. They had a good run ... shit, they all won the lottery ... but the NHL can't continue like this.
And it gets worse: many players are choosing a 90% pay cut to play in Europe, taking jobs from people there who NEED them. So bust the f***in' union and bring on replacement players here ... I can't wait to hear the hypocrites whine about that.
WOULDN'T IT BE NICE IF ...
... the player's union took a public poll re: "Should we accept a salary cap?" That way I would know which of my beloved Canucks were still worth cheering for. What a shame about Trevor Linden. He's such a good guy, I won't hold this one fiasco against him. But I won't be cheering for him either.
Hockey this year? Dunno. But the players will lose, one way or the other. Either they will totally cave soon, and we'll have hockey this year, or they will stay stubborn and really get hammered next year.
