Someone should ask him why that has been owners strategy for 20 years......oh wait, nevermind.LOL, even with the news that both sides are making progress...
(NHL, union meet Friday, plan for more talks - ESPN)
"The decision to cancel the first two weeks of the NHL season is the unilateral choice of the NHL owners," Donald Fehr said in a statement. "If the owners truly cared about the game and the fans, they would lift the lockout and allow the season to begin on time while negotiations continue.
"A lockout should be the last resort in bargaining, not the strategy of first resort. For nearly 20 years, the owners have elected to lock out the players in an effort to secure massive concessions. Nevertheless, the players remain committed to playing hockey while the parties work to reach a deal that is fair for both sides. We hope we will soon have a willing negotiating partner."
This guy is just as big of a scumbag as the rest of them. He can take his cutesy PR and shove it.
