Owners playing hardball with Fans asking for refunds
“We travel a lot and my wife is in grad school,” he said. “We planned to sell a lot of the tickets. At no time did we ever imagine them holding onto thousands of our dollars indefinitely. They were very defiant, very insistent that we can’t touch any of that money or we’d lose our seniority and benefits. We had no choice.”
You can't blame the players for directly screwing over season ticket holders that are asking for a refund. Now I'm reading that the owners may actually be leaning towards something like the 3rd proposal the NHLPA submitted (one of 3 they rejected in record time).
