nhl- Players taking the Brunt of Sacrifices

via Sportsnet, Vancouver Canucks player rep Brendan Morrison thinks it's time to put the game first, and if it means accepting a cap linked to revenues, so be it.
"As negotiations progress, scenarios change," Morrison told the Vancouver Sun. "To get a deal done, a lot of times you have to make sacrifices. I guess it boils down to what's best for the game -- and what's best for the game is to get back on the ice and play. So if that means us maybe taking the brunt of the sacrifices, it looks like that's what we're willing to do."
