lock out just when the Canucks are getting good again...
Maybe we can cook the prospects on the farm a little longer and come out a powerhouse again like last lockout
No, that was one lockout earlier when Burrows, Kesler, Hansen, et al simmered at Portage and Main.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Surprise, surprise
Arizona Coyotes owner Andrew Barroway is in the process of selling the franchise. Plan is to keep the team in the Phoenix area
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

Sounds like Bettman wants no lockout at all, will work hard with the nhlpa to smoothly negotiate an updated CBA.
Gary Bettman on where the NHL stands with a collective bargaining agreement:

"I'm not in favor of having a difficult negotiation.
I hope we can extend and renew with minimal fanfare.
We'll see what happens but I'm not looking for a fight."
Likely because the expansion team is starting soon and doesn't want a fiasco.

I'll take a pass on the explanation of this link. It's worth reading, if for no other reason, it's funny, ish.
Someone can for surely find an applicable visual.
