NHL Lockout is Ridiculous

This is Day 75 of the NHL Lockout. How ridiculous for everyone involved.

The NHL has now canceled 422 regular-season games, lost the Winter Classic in Ann Arbor, Mich., and the All-Star weekend in Columbus. What a waste of time, money, and hockey fun!

I am wondering how it's nearly Dec. 1 and the NHL is still locked out when the fight shouldn't be this tough.

NHL Lockout Update

Now into its 10th week, the lockout has already forced the cancellation of all regular-season games through Nov. 30—and the league is expected to wipe more from the schedule in the coming days. The sides considered taking a break from negotiations last week, but the NHLPA urged the league to continue meeting.

"It's hard for me to see how you make an agreement if you aren't talking and so you talk," said NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr. "Sometimes it doesn't lead anywhere, perhaps very often it doesn't lead anywhere, but if you aren't talking it's 100 percent sure it doesn't lead anywhere."

Glimmer of Hope on the NHL Lockout


All was quiet on the NHL labor on front Sunday, one day before the league and the players’ association planned to return to the bargaining table for the first time in eight days. NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said Saturday that this new round of negotiations was initiated by the players’ association, just days after Commissioner Gary Bettman suggested to union executive director Donald Fehr that the sides take two weeks off from talks. “We can confirm that we have tentatively agreed to get back together on Monday,” Daly said. “The meeting was requested by the union, and it’s their agenda. We will see what they have to tell us.”

NHL Lockout: Day 54


We're 54 days in, and the games-missed tracker remains at 326 plus the Winter Classic (that game doesn't get added to the total because it could still be played -- it would just be played at Joe Louis Arena as a regular game instead of an outdoor celebration.) I'm depressed, anyone else?
