The Players Will Set Us Free

I've been a broken record of sort saying, "the players are the ones saving the sport," here is a great example...

From sportsnet.ca and the Vancouver Sun:

Vancouver Canucks player rep Brendan Morrison thinks it's time to put the game first, and if it means accepting a cap linked to revenues, so be it.

"As negotiations progress, scenarios change," Morrison told the Vancouver Sun. "To get a deal done, a lot of times you have to make sacrifices. I guess it boils down to what's best for the game -- and what's best for the game is to get back on the ice and play. So if that means us maybe taking the brunt of the sacrifices, it looks like that's what we're willing to do."

This is not an uncommon way of thinking among many of the players I talk to. I'm glad someone was willing to say it on the record...
