What are they fighting for, the top 40 guys who already have the money? I feel sorry for these kids here. What are they playing for? The love of the game. I was a player rep but I was just a hockey player. You look to your executive director, your tax man and people like that. If you tell me we were savvy guys, we were not. We're players. We know the game. I'd love to sit down in that room now and talk to (NHLPA head) Bob (Goodenow) and say, `It doesn't work like that'. The kids who spoke (Commodore&Dagenais), that came from the heart, and they got shut down right away. I listened to the kid from Calgary and the kid from Montreal and it made sense. And then they went to a meeting and the guys say, "Now I understand better.' Now, the hard-line guys are saying, `Look, times have changed. We have to run the business like it should be run. There's got to be a hole somewhere. I don't think the owners are trying to crush the players. They're good businessmen. They want to operate now."
