Duncan Keith, all-star defenseman for the Chicago Blackhawks, says the NHL lockout is embarrassing.
"It's just embarrassing for everybody," he says. "There's a lot of talk for the fans. They're the ones who don't have a voice and aren't being heard in these negotiations. It's tough on them, but it's frustrating for players. We want to play hockey. It's what we've been doing since we've been young. But we understand the situation and what needs to be done and why we're not playing. We want a fair deal and we're not going to play until we get that."
