    And whats your point? Opinions change...obviously Gretzky's opinion changed from when he was playing to his ownership role. It's unfair for you to base Gretzky's opinion on something he said in 1994.

    As for what Bettman said...what's wrong with that. Basically he says he can see both sides of the argument...he understands that players want to make as much money as possible...but since he represents the owners, he also sees the rights of the owners to make money.

    This is a pointless thread

    The most interesting quote IMO is the last one. It underlines a (imo, hilarious) fact, that the strictest, most hardline league supporters are to be found on this board, not in the NHL office. :)

    So it took ten years for PA to admit that Luxury tax may work. It will take another ten years for PA to admitt the HARD CAP at $38M

    How is accurately quoting Gretzky unfair? I didn't say that was his current opinion. That's why I also asked when. But it very easily could've come from the mouth of a current player during this lockout.

    Ziegler's statement could've come from the NHL's central offices today.

    And Bettman's words were interesting because he was putting the onus for economic responsibilty on the teams. It's something you might hear from Goodenow.

    Yes it could, but it would be still be a statement of ignorance, just like it was in 1994.

    Bettman and Goodenow are not dictators, dragging their constitutents into fights neither side wants. Both are doing the bidding of the people that hired them.

    Clearly different circumstances, caused by the lack of PA's foresight. No need to engage in details of proving how dumb your statement looks, everyone here is intelligent enough to see it for themselves.

    The inconsistencies in the league's position were already pointed out, I was showing that it works both ways.

    I will use subtitles next time.

    So was I. I didn't know there was a quota for how much we could point such things out in a thread, but now I do. Thanks.

    You also used the letter "o" a highly disproportionate number of times in your last post (ten times) and exceeded the 10% ratio for any single letter to be used in one post (you used "o" 11.23% or the time).

    Please refrain from repeating this transgression. :teach:

    Be nice....he doesn't look like Barbara Streisand's peanut filled pasty stool. Using M.Moore is very harsh.
