I was suprised and disappointed that not one reporter thought to aske Bob Goodenow if he would ever consider a referendum on the cap issue. Players just want to play hockey and the more you listen to player interviews the more you realize that they are just following their leader. Very few seem to be able to think for themselves. They are pawns in the hands of their dictator and need to stand up and be honest with their fearless leader. If players were allowed to speak the truth and not have to worry about offending Bob or answering to Bob or peer pressure - most would be honest and say they would play with a cap system. Ask any player what the ideology or principle is that they stand for against working under a cap system and they are at a loss for words. Most just echo what Bob says and it's time for them to speak for themselves. It's time for Bob to take the high road and ask all of his players to vote on the issue. After all, he is playing with their lives.
