NHLPA Resonds To The Two Week Break Suggestion

from Michael Russo of Russo's Rants,

I sent an email to the NHLPA seeking response.

From special counsel Steve Fehr: "Of course everyone on the players' side wants to reach an agreement. The players have offered the owners concessions worth about a billion dollars. What exactly have the owners offered the players? We believe that it is more likely that we will make progress if we meet than if we don't. So we are ready to meet. If indeed they do not want to meet, it will be at least the third time in the last three months that they have shut down the dialogue, saying they will not meet unless the players meet their preconditions. What does that tell you about their interest in resolving this?"

The two weeks is far shorter than the 3 months I have refused to spend on the NHL so far and it’ll be at least 6 months before I spend any money on the NHL again in the future. I even stopped the grandparent’s from buying an NHL licensed hockey uniform for my kid at Build-A-Bear of all places.

And yes, I know the NHL has plenty of other people willing to spend their money and don’t need mine and nothing that any of us do makes a difference.  However, it made me feel good and since I’m not interested, then neither was my kid.

I’m a firm believer in voting with our purchases, and every dollar does matter. Good on you for being attentive.
