08:21 AM ET 10.11 | Saying that players are still all on the same page, Ryane Clowe spoke out Wednesday against the owners -- though he did wonder if perhaps some of them liked the players' proposal. [Clowe] has never been one to hold back his thoughts and the San Jose Sharks winger is certainly growing frustrated as the NHL lockout drags on. But he also believes the 700-plus NHL players in a battle with owners for a new collective bargaining agreement won't wilt. ... "No one's cracking. We're informed and updated and guys have a good understanding of what's going on. ... We're hockey players," he added. "We're not going to get pushed around." Of particular irritation to Clowe has been the league's proposals.

Oh Ryan ! Failure to acknowledge the inevitable only makes it harder to bear when it finally hits you in the face. You Players as of today are "united athletes losing money in a fight your gonna lose anyways". Good thing your all good at Hockey, because brains would not have got you through this life.
