This is a sad story with no winners, but the tagline of the story is this: the players in the NHL are sick and tired of Gary Bettman, and they will sacrifice their greater financial good to drive this man out of their game.
That’s how much they hate him.
It really has come to this awful juncture, an irreconcilable difference in the minds of the players that they must defeat Bettman at all costs. I have spent the last couple months or so in regular contact with a wide number of players, and this is what it has come down to – sadly.
NHL players are a unique breed. They can lose a fight with dignity, but they never forget and they always try to even the score eventually. They lost and lost big to Bettman in 2005. They admitted it and said there were no hard feelings after their year-long fight that cost the whole season over monetary issues.
