The more players like esche pronger and mccabe talk the more I realize that they are sounding more and more like the arrogant Bob Goodenow than the professional players that once seperated them from other pro ahtletes. No longer are they showing the class we all came to love about hockey players. Goodenow or should I say Blind leading the blind into obscurity and what will be the biggest miscalculation since Sadaam in 1990. The NHL is losing it's value and players like Pronger McCabe Esche and others may think they are doing the right thing for the game but IMHO and the opinion of the vast majority of media and hockey fans is that this work stoppage will cost many of the NHLPA members their jobs and lower the value of the remaining players by a very high percentage. NO HOCKEY THIS YEAR AND LIKELY NOT UNTIL JANUARY 2006 UNLESS THE NHLPA IS BROKEN A MOVE MANY OF US HOPE COMES SOONER THAN LATER. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT GOODENOW SUPPORTS HIS PLAYERS BREAKING RANKS AND TAKING JOBS FROM PLAYERS IN EUROPE AND IN THE AHL. TALK ABOUT A LEADER THAT ISN'T LOOKING AT THE BIG PICTURE AND IS ONLY CONCERNED ABOUT THE TOP END GUYS AND HIS OWN EGO.
