Former MLB Commissioner Fay Vincent With Advice For The NHL

from David Pollak of the Mercury News,

Whatever fault Vincent might find with Fehr, the former commissioner described their dealings as "first-rate" and said it's the NHL owners who have to come to their senses at this point, as baseball owners finally did.

"The insight that everybody comes to ultimately is that without the players there is no game," Vincent said. "And you can fight with them only so long because you can't get along without them. If you ever want to have a game and you're an owner, you have to give them their way."

His final advice to Fehr's current opponents: "Make the best deal you can, but don't let it go on very much longer. The hemorrhaging is very serious."
