While some NHL players aren’t hurting in the wallet because they are getting paid to play overseas, others are financially strained due to the lockout.
On Saturday, the NHLPA approved a deal that would give all players a $10,000 stipend. The lockout has already taken 422 NHL games hostage, and players have missed four paychecks so far.
While 10,000 bucks is nothing to scoff at, players would much rather be getting paid to perform on the ice instead of sitting at the bargaining table. As negotiations between the players and owners continue, the ball is once again in the players’ court, as they must respond to a proposal from Gary Bettman.
Check out what some players had to say about the lockout in the video above.
