I just found it really irritating that other people are being forced to take a pay cut because the players won't - and in some cases two layers of people (other players in other leagues and other employees connected to the NHL). Some folks might want to defend unions but the NHLPA isn't even behaving like how a normal union behaves in the way that they are stealing jobs from others.
Agreed. The economic ripple effect this is having on secondary personnel (eg vendors, restaurant workers, lot attendants et al) is unconscionable.
