Holik Tells NHLPA Players To Shut Up
TSN is reporting NY Rangers checking center, Bobby Holik, is telling his fellow union members to shut their traps in regards to the battle of wills over a new CBA. This comes as New Jersey Devils’ forward John Madden leaked his willingness to play under a cap assuming the games would begin soon. Madden since said the comments were taken out of context.
Holik is a perfect spokesperson for the NHLPA considering he is the poster child for over-paid NHL players. Last year he played 82 games and scored 56 total points according to ESPN.com. He makes an astonishing $9,000,000 per year thanks to a bidding war a few years back.
It is only a matter of time until players start to speak up out of sheer boredom coming from missing the game. Who do you think will be the next to break the union line? JR? Brett Hull? Mario?
