from Randy Sportak of the Calgary Sun,
Ken Dryden has a harsh message for both sides in the NHL lockout — they’re both to blame if the 2012-13 season is lost.
On a day the NHL cancelled a month’s worth of games in the dispute that’s now reached six weeks, the hall-of-fame goaltender and six-time Stanley Cup champion said the players and owners must look past their own goals for the betterment of all.
“They have to understand this is not make-or-break,” said Dryden, the keynote speaker at the Palliser Hotel Friday for the Magnificent Men! Leadership Speaker Series.
“This is not survival — real or imagined — on either side of it. Both are doing well enough. Both are doing well enough in a context where a lot of people around — meaning their fans — are not doing so well.
“And, after you’ve lost one season in 2004, you can’t lose another without it being a defeat for both sides, a failure for both sides.”
