The current stance taken by the National Hockey League Players Association and the players is "utter stupidity." The only way the league can make it is to have a "salary cap." Look at the NFL!
What a smart financial decision they're making. I read where someone is playing for $500 a week-minimum wage. Wow! Even the great Michael Peca, who only worries about his own financial situation, must eventually realize that their stance is stupid!
Oh well, one more year in the "short" playing life of two hockey players down the drain.
