My rant for the day!! I know there are many legal hurdles to jump but I'm sick and tired of Goodenow and his overpaid and very spoiled player reps. IMO it's time to lock them all out permanently and throw away the key. I will be season tickets for replacement players that actually want to play hockey for a portion of the rediculous salaries that todays NHL players are demanding. I'm tired of being held hostage by these guys and by their illustrious leader. The sooner we move on to the new era of the NHL II the better as far as I'm concerned. Most of you pro player pro NHLPA types on this board are sickening in your support of these selfish greedy overpaid players that think their playing and living in fantasyland. I say give the players one last chance within the next 7 days to vote through their player agents whether or not they will come back to work for 54% of agreed upon gross revenues with all other factors being negotiable or else say goodbye.
