“Because They’re The NHL”

from Tim Sassone of the Chicago Daily-Herald,

Jonathan Toews has been one of the most outspoken players, criticizing NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman and the owners about their tactics. Toews also is worried that the whole season could be missed.

“I don’t know, I wasn’t there in ’04-’05, and there’s a lot of things you can look at that differentiate the two situations, but at the end of the day it’s the same ownership group and it’s the same commissioner, so you can’t rule that out,” Toews said of possibly missing the whole season.

“I saw it in the meeting room last week where everyone worked very hard on coming up with those three proposals and they didn’t even have the courtesy to look at them for more than five minutes or even discuss it.

“There was no discussion. I don’t know what’s going to happen the next week or so, but we’ve stood up and stayed together this whole time and worked very hard to try and negotiate.

“They’ve done all this so far because they can. It almost to the point where you believe they’re excited to do this because they’re the NHL.”
