The NHLPA says it offered three alternatives to which, after a "10 minute" review were all rejected by the NHL. Hmmm, this seems like a grand negotiating technique with the revenue stream in mind (fans).
Stand up fans! The only way to pay these people back is for us fans (or "chumps" as Bettman has alluded) is to lock our selves out of the arenas once they decide to quit jerkin' around and get back to playing.
Don't spend a penny of your hard earned, yet meager in comparison, earnings on anything NHL for the first two weeks they come back. If we fans/chumps don't send a message, they will continue to abuse us for years to come. Get the word out!
