I'm starting to get really fed up with all these NHL players and their stance on replacement players. I was reading the hockey news and reading all these comments about how if replacement players play they should have their heads up because they will be marked men. Why exactly? Just because they are taking your job from you? Then why shouldn't NHL players be marked men in Europe, or the AHL, or wherever they are playing? They are doing EXACTLY the same thing to all these other players. You are taking jobs away from them and you are no better than scabs yourself. Heaven forbid someone accuses them of it though. Everything you hear about NHL players going somewhere else to play is about how they need to make money. Bull****! These are guys that have been making over a million dollars per year for a few years now. Don't try to tell me that they are hurting for money. Some of the lower level guys will be, but these guys that are going to Europe for big money (Nash, Kovalchuk, etc.) have no need for more money. In my books, they should be thought of the same way as replacement players in the NHL would be, as scabs, nothing less.
