Too late. If I've lived this long without you I will survive if you never come back. As a former national team athlete I would have been filled with gratitude to get paid to do my sport beyond my amateur days.

There shouldnt be unions in sports anyways, it's not like your life is tough and working conditions are brutal or your pay is low. The NHL keeps shooting itself in the foot pretty soon we will be back to the original 6 teams and thats it.

The NHL can't have that the reason the nfl and nba ended their lockouts after dissolution of the union was we can't have our dirty secrets published which is what will happen in the antitrust lawsuits.

Genius move on players' part. Now it's in your court Bettman. His whole intention has been trying to disolve that union himself. Now they agreed to do it...but the payback sure would be heck. Huh Garry?

@theagonybho....not tough? ok...they were treated as property before they had uniform/MLB and you're ok with that? that's why you had "free agency"...they got the freedom to have a say...
