You have to wonder why more of the lower priced players haven't had stuff to say regarding this process. Look at what has gone on so far: 1) the players propose a 24% roll back, but when the owner come back they alter that to be a tiered system where 75% of the players are as good or better off than they are under the deal thier own union was proposing. 2) All of the players who have been in teh press making bold statement about the horribleness of the owners offers are big money players( Pronger, Marchant, Linden, Alfreddson, Chelios, Brodeur, Domi(highest paid goon out there) Guerin, modano( and his DOG) 3) teh minute a lower priced player makes a comment regarding with what tehy would want the PA "Gestapo" is on them and a restraction or miscontrued press conference is called. Can you say Facism. If I was in the silent majority and i had house payment and kids to feed and i was watching the "stars" ruin my lively hood I would be leading a very vocal fight to break my own union if i had to to make sure what I wanted was heard. I start contacting players in similar situations across the league and lead the revolution to depose current leadership. The reality is my vote is worth as much as Any star in the league and i bet I could get enough votes in a non confidence vote to bury Sidehsow bob and the rest of his "mob" out of power. It is time for the players in the nhlpa to sit down and be counted because they still have time to stop this bus that is head over the cliff. If they get rid of the people who are driving in this insane game of chicken they will come out better in the long run. The Current offer the league has proposed has a profit sharing component in it that will allow for future growth in revenues to be shared with the players so how can you throw away the growth that might happen because Modano's Dog needs his 2nd Porche?
