    "Perhaps everyone at that level involved in the taffy pull between owners and players needs to go back 25 years," Jack O'Callahan, a defenseman on the 1980 team, said during a conference call with several other players last week. "They need to take a look at the landscape and be a little more thankful and humble and sit down and work to bring hockey back."


    "It's too bad," forward Rob McClanahan said. "The guys have had a lot of opportunities, they're making significant amounts of money. I understand it's less than other sports, but they have to understand that TV drives the ability to pay players."
