I'd like to think they can still save the season, but I lost faith in that based on the last lockout.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

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'm starting to fear more and more that the entire season is going to be lost, again.

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.

Don Cherry forces all European born producers off the set during his show. They don't have the toughness to make a good meal.

I'm thinking the SPEED network would be a perfect fit for Doc.

Plus, ice rinks are already shaped like ovals :shifty:

this is like telling somebody you would rather pie yourself in the face than let them do it. We will cancel it before they use it against us? first off, I cannot see how 30 owners would support this, also consider that 28 teams won't participate. i think the league anticipates the players waiting until the winter classic is close to make a deal and they want it to happen sooner so they are moving up the date. they are un-cleverly disguising it as "taking away leverage."

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Someone create a new league, please. For all the storied history of the National Hockey League, the luster has really worn off. Using a lockout as a negotiating strategy every time the CBA comes up for renewal is a terrible business tactic. They can't keep jerking people around like this. Unfortunately, there isn't any sort of organized movement to force the owner's hand so we're stuck with whatever they choose to do to us.

We can rant all we want, and I'm certainly angry, but I'm not going to say I'm done with the league. If the Wings come back, I'll watch because I'm a die-hard hockey and Wings fan.

But I wouldn't mind if the players started their own league and I'd probably give that a chance.

Well even if Uncle Gary the Clown hasn't cancelled yet the players could still use it as leverage. What I think will happen is that they will get some sort of agreement done by November 1st.

Another lockout looms, just in time before our Wings play in the WC. Lame.

We'll see how committed Gary is to screwing this league up if he'll even kill of his own baby by canceling the Winter Classic.

Who cares? Two times I had a chance to get Winter Classic tickets, and I declined both times. My main reason was not wanting to deal with trying to get a refund if the game get cancelled. Also I figured instead of a refund they'd only give me tickets toward future games, and I'd rather get my money back.

Do people even care about the lockout? Most of my friends think the entire thing is a big joke, point out that the league grew $1 billion since the last lockout, and the owners still want more. Bettman better take this serious, because this is going to do some real big damage to the League.

The longer this goes, the more pressure it is on the owners, and the players know it. Fehr isn't is a rush to get something done and I support him 100%.
