08:23 AM ET 10.16 | Step right up, Shawn Horcoff. The Oilers' captain has been active in the NHLPA for years, and even though he's not surprised that another round of regular-season games are expected to be chopped this week, it doesn't make it any easier. "It's the same thing every time with the owners. [Commissioner Gary Bettman's] first defense is to cancel games and test the players. There's been no effort to negotiate on his stance. Their negotiation is 'The players have to come down to us or we're not moving at all,'" Horcoff told ESPN The Magazine. "Gary has forced the players' hand into this situation and frankly, he's [ticked] us off. I think at the start, that first offer they gave out, that was a big, big mistake on Gary's part."

ALL OF YOU SHUT UP! Good lord do you not understand how little anybody cares about what you think of somebody? You all are equally at fault. Stop getting liquored up like Mike Vanderjagt and spewing ish like this out of your mouth and do something productive with your time.

+1000..........do you think any fans are ticked off????

I should have called a bookie at half time. I knew the Chargers would choke it away and Phillip Rivers definitely didn't disappoint.

The 1st dr. of the 2nd 1/2 was the tip off, Manning was having none of this! Amazing

As for this Shawn Horcoff clown, he can go pound sand. He is full of it when he says that the owners have not budged, they have. In return the players have run off to Europe and Russia instead of offering any counter proposals. I got ten bucks that says the players don't bring a serious counter to the table today as well. The NHLPA will show up, tell the owners that they are not interested in compromising and then walk out and tell the press that the owners are greedy rich people who are trying to take advantage of them.

and the only real thing that suffers is the game itself.....along with countless fans, minimum wage workers, and so on....owners/players will still live the "Good Life".....

Horcoff is third line center at best plays with no heart and accomplishes zero on the ice. Yet you will make $33 mil over 6 years. Yeah Shawn you are getting screwed over big time.

Lock them in a room with coffee and donuts and let them bounce ideas around until it's settled, like the autoworkers do.
