    Mike Modano: Lockout wasn't worth it

    http://espn.go.com/nhl/story/_/id/8396004/mike-modano-estimates-lost-7m-last-lockout

     

    Mike Modano, the all-time leading point scorer among American-born players, estimates the last lockout cost him more than $7 million in salary by sitting out a year. To him, the payoff wasn't worth the sacrifice.

     

    "I would say (to them) that it's not a battle you're going to feel like you're going to win," he said. "It's a negotiation. You feel at some point that both sides will be upset about what they have to give up."

    Economically and in his own self interest Modano is absolutely correct.  There is not a need for collective guilt either in the NHLPA or with the NHL owners. If a player signs a contract it should be honored.  If a franchise folds in a city, then no buy outs.  The collective mantra does not work at all for either sides.

    Seems as relevant today as it did then.
