Red Wings fined over comments calling players 'cattle'

The Detroit Red Wings have been fined by the NHL for comments made by senior Vice President Jimmy Devellano about the current lockout, instituted a week ago by owners after the collective bargaining agreement expired.

In an Island Sports News interview last week, Devellano said, "The owners can basically be viewed as the ranch, and the players, me included, are the cattle. The owners own the ranch and allow the players to eat there. That's the way it's always been and that's the way it will be forever. And the owners simply aren't going to let a union push them around. It's not going to happen."

The amount of the fine was undisclosed by the National Hockey League but it is reportedly $250,000.

Devellano, 69, was the Red Wings' general manager for eight seasons until moving to his current job as senior vice president in 1990. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2010 under the builder category.
