This morning, it was the League offering their own statement on their stance of the lockout that commenced at 12:01 a.m. this morning.Now, the NHLPA has released a video that features players like David Backes, Jonathan Toews and Sidney Crosby talking about how this is an "Owners lockout" and the sacrifice they've made and are willing to make.

Concussions have limited Crosby's play the past two seasons. The KHL did sign star players Evgeni Malkin...
TELLING IT LIKE IT IS
I hate to say this, but today kind of feels like a funeral. It's also kind of a case Deja Vu all-over again, we have seen this act before - and we didn't really like it very much. Here is the video from the NHLPA players and former Fighting Sioux forward Jonathan Toews is in the video. Related articles

All of a sudden, hockey fans are the center of PR messages from the league and spiffy videos from the NHLPA (featuring David Backes!) explaining why people won't be going to any pre-season games this month, or NHL hockey games in general for quite some time.

Let's face it: the lockout's only a few days old, and already it sucks. What more reminder can we need? Well, as our friends at The Pensblog found out, the NHL's team pages are as blank as blank can be when it comes to members of the NHLPA.
