I don't much care what anyone else says at this point in time. I have major issues with blackmail and that's exactly what the NHL is doing to the NHLPA.
The union is ineffective, about as useful as tits on a boar hog, and couldn't negotiate their way out of cage match with two freaking hamsters. Bettman and Co. have them by the balls with their right hand, a butcher knife in their left hand, and a demonic grin on their collective faces as they say to the NHLPA, "We have a deal, don't we? Or do you want to be castrated?"
I'll say more about this later, but I will say right now, I wonder how the players feel about their UNION right about now?
Wonder if they'd like to decertify the dang thing and start all over again because the NHL has officially broken this one's back.
