Well it looks like we will have to agree to disagree, not only on what each has said, and what we think we have said but also what we think the other one has said as well.
I suppose that's the rule rather than exception around

If every single fan called the league and gave their two cents, would it make a lick of a difference?

Regular season games have officially been cancelled, and that really pisses me off.

I called: 212-789-2000

OK its official we now are losing regular season games. Whats wrong with this picture? I'll tell you whats wrong.

The NHL dispute is being led by two people, Feur (baseball origins) and Bettman (basketball origins) , neither one of which are true hockey people and neither one of which really understand the true nature of the greatest sport in the world. Both of these idiots have to go. Enough is enough. Bring in two real hockey people,like say Malholtra for the players and Kevin Lowe for the owners ,get them to hammer out a reasonable deal(probably half way between both proposals) and end this ridiculous dispute.

I honestly think the whole problem so far has been that the wrong people are leading each side. It takes people with a true passion for the game to try and settle this thing.

I for one have vowed that I will never watch another NHL game if this season is totally lost.I've had it with these prima donnas like Feur and Buttman destroying the game I really love. I'll watch my WHL games and the Lions ,but I'll totally block out the NHL.

Totally agree! Get rid of the non-hockey people. Let the players and former players work it out.
At least we can assume they understand the need for the games to be played!

As for the netball and stickball people - good riddance! :evil:

Well technically they have cancelled existing games, however those games can be made up if a resolution is found soon.

On TSN they were saying they'd be willing to allow the season to extend to the end of June. They can also cancel the All-Star game (which would be fine by me BTW).

If there's a way to get in 82 games you better believe the owners will be all for it, this is a gate driven league!

Yeah, 2005-06 is the year the Sedins really broke out offensively - if they had done that in 2004-05 instead... let's say Henrik gets 57 assists that lockout season - considering that he is currently 83rd on the All-Time Career Assists list with 576 - with no 2004-05 lockout he would be inside the top 70 at 68th alongside the likes of Darryl Sittler, Borje Salming, Peter Forsberg, Neal Broten, and Mike Gartner.

On the bright side, they are celebrating in Toronto as they are tied for first in their conference. :lol:

I knew last season that there would be a lock out and still say that this whole season is gone. The owners and players will never learn how to properly divide up the pie. Give me 30 minutes and I can do a better job that a bunch of over priced lawyers will ever do when they want it to go on and on.

Do you think an actual photo of shorts eating will scar my mind less than the mental image I have now?

You mean scabs. Replacement players are those who play when a player is injured. A scab is a loathesome piece of shit that hopefully dies a slow and painful death. Used exclusively by rich owners of businesses to steal the food out of your children's mouth. In this instance they would be used to break the NHLPA. If scabs are ever introduced, this is one fan who will walk away forever. When Keanu Reeves starred as a scab I quit going to any movies he has been in.

So...... Its ok for an NHLPA player to go overseas and take a job away from some poor smuk just trying to put food on the table
