Esposito not on players' side

Yet another opinion comes trickling in about the NHL standoff. Hall of Famer Phil Esposito chimes in with his two cents:
"Well, for the first time in my lifetime, I don't agree with the players," Esposito said Tuesday. "I think they're wrong this time. It's the first time, ever, that I ever thought the players were wrong. And this time I just do not understand what the big deal is with a salary cap. I just don't understand it....(It's) not going to affect anybody, but it might take away the 10-11 million dollar player which, there is no room for it anyway in the National Hockey League, because the revenues just don't justify it."
You know, I may not agree that a hard salary cap is a necessity, however, I don't think that I've heard a satisfactory response from the NHLPA as to whay a salary cap is such a dirty concept. I'm with you Phil, an explanation is required.
