Players say they are fighting for the next generation.
Very admirable and very misguided.
The players concerns should be reversed.
Take care of the players before you who built the union that you have benefited from. The number of former players who are currently destitute, living below the poverty line and struggling just to live, is shameful. A simple deduction of 0.5% each year from every NHL player and a matching amount from the NHL would solve the problem but they both refuse. Its not even a discussion topic in CBA talks.
