08:22 AM ET 11.21 | Vancouver Canucks goalie Cory Schneider's voice during the lockout has been one of reason nearly throughout the negotiations. [Schneider] isn't too happy with the recent name-calling by his NHL peers. In the last few days Florida Panthers forward Kris Versteeg has called NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and his sidekick, Bill Daly, "cancers" on the game. ... Schneider thinks it's all getting a little out of hand. "It's getting a little personal," Schneider told Sportsnet. "We'd like to think we are adults and can handle this in an appropriate way. It's easy to direct your anger towards one person because he represents the owners and the owners aren't allowed to speak. I don't think we condone that but at the same time it's a heat of the moment mistake."

It's getting a little personal, Schneider told Sportsnet. We'd like to think we are adults and can handle this in an appropriate way.

I would hope that the fans who do show up at the first game boo thru the whole game to show their displeasure.

Corey's not worried. He peeked in Booby's locker and saw the open Greyhound ticket to To***to.

Wrong, your hatred of the little weasel has clouded your vision.......badly.

I don't think so. If you remember correctly, it was El Dwarfo that originally took the very hard line...Fehr offered to start the season under the olde CBA and negotiate as the season unfolded...if it was a legit offer or not, (maybe he knew what the answer would be) but Bettman said no...

It's always personal: "I want your money and you won't give it to me." That's personal.

both of your judgements are clouded by hatred badly this just in the idea of negotiations is compromise and if you think the players really compromised when they went down to 50% think again the NBA and NFL who generate more revenue (in the case of the NFL FAR more revenue) are in the 50/50 range and the NHL without much outside league revenue (read big US network deals) were going to be cost competitive at 57% please that said the league did themselves no favors in the way they went about negotiations but then the players demanding that previous contracts be honored and that they should have an incremented ease into the 50/50 were also a little over the top. That said did the players send a message of wanting to get a deal done when they canned Paul Kelley and hired the Fuhrer I believe that if Kelley was there that they would be playing by now and get rid of all the players out of the negotiating room you cannot get deals done with 20-30 people in on the negotiations 4 people 8 people at the max

The hard line was equally shared as the players replaced Kelley with Fuhr that does not say smooth negotiations to me

You mean "it was the owners who took the very hard line".

Thats what ticks me off. The league is not in the same "league" as the big time TV Sports , and yet the Players( by stupid owners) are paid and expect to be paid like they are a big time league??? The Owners had the opportunity to correct everything last lock out. They did not , and here we are again. Whenever they finalize this time, the Owners better have a deal that works long term.
