"Still training hard for the season ahead. Hope Gary Bettman wasn't serious about a lockout. #theplayers @nhlpa”

“#theplayers have grown the game to the best/most exciting/most profitable it's been, now the OWNERS want their money back. #hedgeyourbets"

7. Gabriel Landeskog (@GabeLandeskog92)

“Owners seem to be focused on another lockout. Players are focused on presenting our @NHLPA proposal on Tues. #theplayers” 

6. Steven Stamkos (@RealStamkos91)

“Our negotiating committee & the @NHLPA staff have put a lot of work into our proposal. #theplayers stand behind it 100%”
