Two Hall Of Fame Members Talk Lockout

from Pierre LeBrun and Scott Burnside of ESPN,

The annual Hockey Hall of Fame induction ceremonies provided a pleasant respite from the mind-numbing stalemate that is the NHL’s lockout, but the labor dispute was a constant source of discussion. 

Take Hall of Famer Peter Stastny, who warned that the NHL and its players are doing what could be irreparable harm to the game. 

“Extremely frustrating. It’s frustrating to me as a father, but even more as a person who is connected to the sport,” Stastny told ESPN.com Monday. "Every day, every day there is more and more damage done. Some of it’s irreparable. So the sooner the better. 

“They’re not that far apart, they’re relatively close. ... They’re talking a few hundreds of millions or a few 10s of millions per year, and they’re ready to sacrifice $3.3 billion almost. It doesn’t make sense mathematically.” ...

Another Hall of Famer, Igor Larionov, echoed Stastny’s frustration.
