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!

If there is an 82 game season I'll eat my shorts.

The owners never intended to drop the puck on time and both sides are so utterly arrogant they can't even agree to meet.

As a side note, the Sedins' ability to reach the 1000 point plateau has been severely impacted by the turd lockout commissioner.

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

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

Those going over are locked out not on strike so they are not scabs and scum of the earth taking a job of a fellow worker trying to collectively bargain. This is a huge technical distinction...

but as for your ethical conundrum, what job is being taken? Since the lockout was unplanned (if you want to believe that gangster and proven liar Bettman) its safe to assume that all of the teams in Europe have their rosters set and under contract without NHL players, now that some NHL players are temporarily available for an undetermined period of time they will naturally take advantage and some european players will temporarily lose roster spots but they will still be under contract and still have their jobs...It would be stupid for a team to let their lesser players go and hope that the lockout lasts the year because they would be fuk ked if a CBA gets signed this season and they resume play here.

The last time the players called a strike was in 1992 . They had the choice of time so of course called it towards the end of the season and before the playoffs .. in April.. The owners had to knuckle under or lose a huge chunk of change from playoff revenue.. Thats the reason that its a " lockout " not a strike.. The owners are not going to be bent over again... No way will they start a season again with the threat of a strike over their heads..

And yes, before you ask I have been a shop steward in a union and have been part of an ownership group that broke a union and had them decertified.. :).. F the millionaire commie rats !

Seriously!? That's why? I didn't realise that you were on Bettmans staff! oh wait you don't suppose maybe the NHL has locked out the players as a negotiating tactic to pressure the players into agreeing to a CBA they don't want and probably wouldn't sign willingly do you?


btw why would you publically admit to being a turncoat and union buster? I'm supposed to be impressed that knowing the things that unions have given society doesn't shut your gloating? And what has that got to do with your wrong opinion?
