When Evander Kane heard of the NHL’s latest cancellations, he got on his money bidet and took a pic of himself french-kissing gold bricks.

I guess this has all just been a misunderstanding.

I’m pretty sure they all don’t want to play.

I know this because they aren’t playing.

When they all want to play, they’ll play.

I’d say Bettman’s the only one leading his cohort to suicide.  They’re the ones who put the locks on the doors.

Right, because Fehr is such a reasonable guy and has no blame in this.

I agree with HockeyHD’s (seriously) point he made a while ago, that the NHLPA has already lost the money they are now fighting to get back.

No and no.  It’s all about “winning” at this point.  Although I’m still not sure how either side “wins” this current lockout.

Obviously a reasonable dude would have been bullied into a deal by now.
