Time for players to cave The owners are very united. They will not do business until they have a salary cap. The players should just go to the owners and negotiate the best deal they can. They will not get a better deal down the road. And the Alternatives(playing in Europe) pale in comparison to the NHL even with a salary cap. This is past right or wrong and taking sides. The owners are United, never before in a sport have the owners been so united. These are billionaires and they wont do business until they get the deal they want. These owners would let this lock out go on indefinitley until the get the economic system they want. Bettman is the lead man, but has the support of every owner. The players keep losing paychecks. Players, its time to go back to work. Go the the owners and make the best deal you can. If you want more money, do everything you can do to make this game more popular.
