Save the NHL!!!!!

The two sides are meeting, but time is running out to save the season. I think the players need to suck it up and give the owners what they want in this one, and fight the good fight a few years down the road when the health of the league is more solidified. The players aren't going to be making any money if the league folds, or if they are gone for a season or two and the fans don't come back. Especially in markets that hockey is relatively new, like the South, fan retention will be a problem. Don't kill the goose that lays the golden egg players! You'll still make good money, and you'll be remembered as the ones who saved the league. Just accept the leagues CBA proposal and give me my hockey back!

In the meantime, Go Thunderbirds! (Seattle's minor league hockey team)
