I side with no one. They are all assholes. They should of been working hard months ago to prevent this, instead of the last two weeks. They learned from last time (94). They have shitloads of cash put aside for this. This will be a long one. They don't care for the fans one bit.

say goodbye to the NHL

We all said goodbye to the nhl when gretzky retired.

Yes, of course I joke.

What kind of crazy would say something like that?

Suicide for the league...both the owners and players will regret this. It'll be 2033 before the league rebounds in the fans' eyes.

i think the fact that the story about the lockout was first played on yesterday's 6:00 SportsCenter 24 minutes into the show should tell ya' something...

the league was in ruins before this lockout... the effect of a 12-18 month work stoppage? forget it... take what happened to the montreal expos after the 94 baseball strike and multiply it by 30.

this league NEEDS revenue sharing and a salary cap, but the players say there's no way they'll agree to a salary cap... i hope you all like basketball, 'cause that's all you're gonna be seeing come the winter

hahaha, I doubt basketball will ever overtake hockey in Canada as our national sport.

It might have taken 24 mins to make it onto sports news in the U.S. but it's practically headline news here...although that probably doesn't mean a lot! lol!

anyhow, it's not all doom and gloom - I read that if the NHL declares an "impasse" then the NHL's guidelines take precedence over the Union's and the players can choose to play or not...Something like that - I'm sure someone else knows what I'm talking about and can explain it better!

This scares the bejeezus out of me.

I know the league truly does need a cap, but I just can't side with the owners on this simply because Gary Bettman spews so much shit and is such a pompous dickhead that I can't imagine ever being on his side.

I think after this ends that the NHL Board of Governors seriously needs to look at replacing Bettman. I mean, there have been two stoppages in his tenure and not a single one before he came along...either he's a poor negotiator or he's a hardass (or both). Either way Bettman is a shit-eater.

Now we'll see more college basketball on TV. THE best game in the winter.:up:
