How greedy can the owners be? When they buy a team for $70mm that is now worth $250mm and what do the players get $0.00.
MAN UP OWNERS pay what you owe and grade into 50-50. Compromise NOW

It's like a stock - owners have 100% ownership of the stock and split dividends with the players. Get Gary out of there now! Owners are soooo wrong on this one. Who are you hurting? Workers and Fans #1but and #2.

The players make the teams? Not so much...without the owners thered be no team. Without the players the team would just...find new players...

When many owners are showing losses each year, that's unacceptable. Who in their right mind would say "oh, let's invest 250 million dollars, so we can take yearly losses"...

sorry, but owners are the ones who should actually be showing profits on their investment, yearly, which is what this whole ordeal is about

Or, we could just give the players whatever they want. Based on this ill concieved concept that they're the important part. Let more team owners go bankrupt, so the nhl has to try to keep even more teams remaining until someone decides to waste millions just for bragging rights...

And in five years the nhl will be bankrupt and not exist.

If that's really what you want.
