Trevor Linden and many other player reps paid the fans lip service claiming that we are great fans that deserve to be watching NHL hockey right now. Trevor, I have news for you. We agree with you. You could be playing hockey within 2 weeks if you just agree to what most of us realistic, objective, ordinary and everyday fans want. We want you to negotiate within the framework offered by the owners. Owners do have certain rights as well don't you think? Fans are as much a product of the game as players are. Without fans you could put the best players in the world on the ice and with nobody there to cheer the atmosphere would be boring. WE WANT HOCKEY BACK ASAP. Right now, many fans are turning on you guys and fans like myself will never want to cheer for you again. The NHLPA is run by higher paid players most of whom play on big market teams that can afford your contracts. Please try to put your personal feelings aside and think of all 30 teams and the job security for all players that play in the NHL. IT'S TIME FOR A VOTE. If you really believe in what you are sacrificing your careers for don't you think it would be prudent to have a secret vote, like today!?
