As Bob Mackenzie was reporting, the owners plan may be to not use replacement players at all, but rather just to continue the lockout another year. Perhaps McCabes comment really irked them, and they decided then to put it to the test. After all, that is the only way they can win power back. Hopefully they also realize the folly that replacement players would do to the league. But for whatever reason, if there is no replacement players, no draft, no hockey again next fall, and we are here one year from now, and nothing has changed ... If this is the strategy, do you still find the owners decision making wise? Still worth it? Worth your support? Still cant find another way of saving the money? Darkness descending faster lately.
