One of the most knowledgable and respected hockey minds in the game, Bill Watters says the season is over. I think there is a day or two left for a potential HERO to step up and save the season. It would have to be a high profile player IMO to speak out and bring some sanity to the labour dispute but in all honesty I can't think of anyone other than Sakic or Yzerman and they won't say anything against Bob. Are there any other players that have the leadership, kahoonas and confidence they will need to lead the revolt? Bob - you had at least 3 years to open negotiations with Gary and your deadline hunting tactics have backfired on you and the players that you supposedly represent. Time Bob, to make things right. Cost Linkage and the owners will give in on many other issues. If you wait until next year it will be Cost Linkage and the owners terms that bring players back at much less than what they could get right now. 48 hrs. and counting IMHO.
