So much for my excitement about actually getting tickets. This whole things sucks. I would think the league would want to do everything in their power to make sure the Classic happens, given that they will be making asstruckloads of money. They're shooting themselves in the foot, and shooting all of us in the face.

We should send all the owners and players involved to Siberia to hold their own Winter Classic in an ice shack until they work out their differences.

This entire scenario is beyond aggravating at this point. It's becoming hard to remain a loyal hockey fan through hard times like these.

Again if further proof was needed this shows exactly that the midget knows absolutely nothing about hockey.

The league will lose all that money. I'm having a very hard time supporting NHL hockey at the moment. Love my Wings and always will, but if the NHL has to take a major hit then they deserve the fall out.

I blame everyone associated with the NHL for this debacle. Part of me wishes the league would fold, since they're stupid enough to have 2 lockouts within one decade.

Seems like a way to apply more pressure...

I could care less at this point...

Fool me once, fool me twice... Fool me three times?

Time to start coming up with ideas on lock out t shirts

The lockout is all because of money. Now there talking about the event that would bring in the most money of the NHL season. Foolish, getting tired of this stuff already and were only a week in.

So will I be getting a refund on the $750 I just paid for my tickets, if that happens? If not, I'm going to have to take a long, hard look at whether I want to devote any of my future time or money to NHL hockey.

This is what I don't understand--the players don't stand to make any more money with or without the classic! Why should they care, other than for the fans, which its already been made painfully obvious that no one gives a s*** about? The league stands to make a fortune. I don't imagine Mr. I is too pleased with this decision, given the money it will bring into the city...

“Gary told (the board of governors) he was going to cancel the Winter Classic in November because he didn’t want the players to use the game as leverage,” the report quotes the source.

More negotiating nonsense from the league: do it our way or we'll just whine and keep extending the lockout.

I was kinda thinking the Winter Classic would be the start of the season the way things were playing out. Now I just fully expect the entire season to go down the drain. Too much arrogance and incompetent fools running this league to have any confidence they will do something sensible for once.

And I thought Bud Selig was the worst commissioner in sports.

At least there is that. I have been worried they would either cancel the game, or not, the week prior to it. All this talk about the Classic being the first game of the year, if that happens, we are likely to not know until right before it, in which case, I have to find people, transportation, and lodging in a matter of days to make it. Not how I wanted the WC trip to pan out. At least if they cancel it in Nov I'll know.

Either way.....I'm getting really tired of this lockout s*** already.

I think some here might be done with hockey if the entire season ends up being wiped out. The NHL had gone so far from 2006, and now all the momentum ends again. Get ready for some Minnesota, Calgary, Winnipeg and Florida cup finals that won't draw for s*** but is all part of Bettman's plan.

I wonder what channel the NHL will be relegated to when it returns in 2014?

Can't get much worse than Versus, you'd think.
