Make The Right Deal

from Ken Campbell of The Hockey News,

What the league has to do is grow some and hold out for the deal it needs. It should not be concerned with saving the season. Its primary objective should be saving the business because this cycle of lockouts is getting rather old. If that means a shortened season or no season at all, so be it. Do not cave to the segment of fans whose only answer to this lockout is to lock the owners and players into a room until a deal is done, or just get a deal done already because we don’t care about these issues.

Just bloody well get it right this time.

I agree that they need to make the right deal, but I disagree that that can’t be done by locking them in a room and forcing them to figure it out. It doesn’t necessarily require so much waiting.  I understand that pressures change over time and can lead to concessions, but I think they could figure it out if forced. They really should just bring in a moderator, but I’m sure the idea of fairness, as opposed to winning, scares both sides.
