THE NHLPA OFFER
This is a terrific offer and the owners should jump at it. First, because it is likely the best offer they will ever get. Second, if they don't, the fans will start to blame them for the impasse. It's bad politics, and it's bad business.
So is there hope? Hard to tell. Depends if there are more progressive owners than dinosaurs like the Black Hawk's Bill Wirtz. If Wirtz is the standard, then hockey is doomed. Lets hope the collective ownership doesn't hail from Jurassic Park.
