from James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail,
On Thursday, Hamrlik said in an interview with The Globe and Mail that while he wasn’t taking back his comments, he also wants it made known he will support whatever the players decide.
His frustration, however, is over the 130 or so games (and counting) he has lost in his 20-year career to labour disputes.
“This is nothing against any of the players,” Hamrlik said. “I stand with them. We are all together in this. And we want a great deal. A fair deal. Everybody’s losing in this right now. Owners, players, fans.
“The fans are the reason for hockey. Some cities won’t be able to recover their fans for future seasons. I just want to say I’ve been in the league for 20 years and faced three lockouts and there’s only 14 other guys that have done that. I believe I’ve earned the right to say what I think.
