Public opinion is expressing more and more anger and frustration with the players and Bob Goodenow and at least 90% seem to openly support the owners this time around. Will the players-PA and the NHL ever recover or will they be permanently scared once the dust settles from this war? I know I will never feel the same towards most of todays overpaid players for not sticking up against the big bully better known as Bob Goodenow. I think the game of hockey will suffer a great deal of unreperable damage and public opinion has definately turned against the players and the PA. I doubt that Bob Goodenow or his high priced clones have even considered these facts. I really believe that if this work stoppage continues much longer players value will be decreased by at least half of what it was before September 15th. Pronger may just have to settle for that 5 million he said he would never work for. A PUBLIC RELATIONS NIGHTMARE FOR THE PLAYERS AND THE NHLPA.
