If you have not noticed, the players are not happy with the current situation of the NHL lockout.  With commissioner Gary Bettman and the NHL offering the NHLPA a 50/50 revenue split on Wednesday, the concern turned to the players and why they had not accepted an offer they have stood by for the entirety of the offseason ordeal.

Ryane Clowe and Logan Couture were quick to explain the reality of the situation via Twitter Thursday.

Players will take the leagues 50/50 split all we want is to honor contacts already negotiated and signed. Players took two days to review

NHL proposal and Bettman/owners take 10 minutes to review 3 of our legit proposals today

Bettman/Owners have a date when they want hockey to played again and until then fans and players have to wait and listen to their web of BS

When I reference owners in my tweets it’s referring to 6-8 owners

For people hating on the players saying take 50/50 it’s fair..we offered that, as long as current contracts are honored. Fair. Gary says no
