08:23 AM ET 11.23 | Washington Capitals defenseman Roman Hamrlik, a veteran nearing the age of 40 and frustrated by the lack of progress in CBA negotiations, wound up in some hot water when his comments called out NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr and asked for a player vote on a new CBA. "I've been in the league for 20 years and faced three lockouts," Hamrlik told TSN's That's Hockey on Wednesday. "There's only 14 other players in the league that are facing their third career lockout. I believe I've earned the right to say what I think." ... "We need to find an agreement -- I still support Fehr, but we as players we need to push him a little bit more and get the best deal possible."

although I absolutely agree. I dont necessarily think that the media is the forum for it, but I dont think he should run or hide from his thoughts on the issue. Everyone is entitled to take what they want from the process and to discuss it. Part of a healthy society if you ask me.

Preach it, brother!

And .... go Stamps!

Hey Roman, if you're 38 in the NHL, you've been there for a lot longer than most. One should assume that given the millions players make that your pension is fully funded and you're not worried where your next frozen pizza is coming from. Stop whining!

screw the players. let them start their own league. then they can cry to themselves about even more money. why does a player that earns the type of money NHLers do require a pension after they've made tens of millions of dollars anyway? they can't take care of that with their millions? whiny-**** brats.
