Article by Stan Fischler: http://msn.foxsports.com/story/3155786 -"Needless to say, there are those pro-NHLPA critics in the audience â€” a distinct minority, I might add â€” who argue that the league is attempting to crush the Association of Millionaires. Well, think about it, for a moment. If the players should win this war, it will have crushed the league; so why wouldn't Bettman, Inc. want to defeat the enemy which seems hell-bent on destroying it?" -"...when the league asked the NHLPA to guarantee the savings it promised, the union declined. They know damn well, those so-called "savings" are as useful as Monopoly money." -"We checked the NHL numbers and they were awful.

To an investor, hockey just doesn't work." - Marc Gold, part owner of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, giving his reason for backing out of buying an NHL team.
