Vancouver Canucks forward Henrik Sedin has frequently been called out for his overly calm on-ice demeanor.

But with the NHL lockout surpassing the 80-day mark, Sedin finally showed some emotion in a Vancouver Province report, ripping the owners for their handling of negotiations on a new CBA.

"I don't know if they think they're dealing with kids or that we're stupid or think the fans are stupid," Sedin told the Province. "It's a little mind-boggling when you see what's coming out of their side. I want to hear a change, that they're actually going to give us something in return for the things we've given them."

And Sedin sounded less than optimistic that Tuesday's meeting between a half-dozen owners and players was going to result in anything positive.

"It's good to see that there are new owners coming into the meeting, but the bad thing is there are still some of the tight group that has been there since Day 1," he said. "That's a concern."
