For obvious reasons, plenty of NHL players are questioning their union’s (lack of) leadership.
Avalanche winger Steve Konowalchuk to the DENVER POST: "We should have been prepared five years ago to take a (salary) cap. We were prepared to not take a cap. … But that (no-cap) mentality came from the leadership on down."
Flames defenseman Andrew Ference to the CALGARY HERALD: "It just baffles me that it seems the only people who couldn’t see what was forthcoming was the people within the union."
