Read: All The Anger Will Be Pushed Away Once The Season Starts

While speaking with Arthur Staple of Newsday, Brad Richards spoke about the anger and hatred that the players have for Gary Bettman and some of the other owners.

Richards said that those feelings will need to be put aside once the season starts as that is part of being a professional, “You go out, you play for the logo and the city you’re living in. All that other stuff has got to be put aside, and I’m sure it will be.”

He adds that the distrust between the two sides is a main reason why there is no deal yet.
