Boston Bruins legend Bobby Orr isn’t happy with the NHL owners’ labor proposal.
CSNNE.com hears it from Orr, who now works as an agent, about how the players are looking to get a fair deal done and that the owners’ proposal just won’t cut it. No. 4 just hopes the fans understand the players’ view on things.
“Players want their fair share, and that’s what it’s all about and I think it’s very unfair if fans, until they understand and see everything what’s out there, that they suggest that the players are being greedy.”
It takes a lot to get Bobby Orr riled up and after the players gave up a lot during the 2004-05 negotiations, it’s clear he feels they’ve given up enough already.
