The Bottom Line Is The Owners Want More Money

from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province,

The owners want more money. This is all you need to know about the current impasse.

Eight years after the game was shut down for a season, the owners and their henchman Gary Bettman are back. They got everything they wanted last time - a reduction in salaries, a hard cap, entry-level restrictions, and all with only modest revenue sharing - and they said that deal would insure the game’s prosperity.

Now they want more. Now they want to fix it so they can’t lose.

Maybe it’s understandable. They crushed the union last time. They feel they can do it again.

It’s always about the bottom line. Business is business. Fans be damned.

Not sure which was written first, but that blurb sounds like a tl;dr of Tom Benjamin’s article.
