Ess_Aytch: UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: That is the main issue of this impasse. The owners refuse to honor contracts signed prior to this lockout. I don't care if the NHL ever plays again. Let the owners eat that.

Oh, you're right. Trust me, I'm not on the owners' side here either. They were idiots to hand out these giant contracts right before the CBA expired. Both sides are complicit in this mess and it will result in decreased revenues and probably some teams folding. The league and PA are pissing off hardcore fans and I think there's a mood to punish them when the game comes back.

Ultimately, it will come back because the players know full well they won't get the same money doing the same thing anywhere else, even when they take the salary rollback into account.

I'm no fan of the owners either. A lot of posters jumped all over my comments, rebutting stuff that I never said in the first place!? (WelcomeToFark.jpg) Ess_Aytch, I agree with pretty much everything you posted in response--thanks for saving me the trouble.
