NHL Hockey Is Canceled… For Now

The hockey arenas will be as desolate as a deserted wild west town when they should’ve been bustling with excitement next Thursday but it’s official now: All games have been canceled through October 24th. That’s 82 games that went bye-bye but the chance still exists that those games could be rescheduled. Here’s what the player’s rep had to say:

“If the owners truly cared about the game and the fans, they would lift the lockout and allow the season to begin on time while negotiations continue… A lockout should be the last resort in bargaining, not the strategy of first resort. For nearly 20 years, the owners have elected to lock out the players in an effort to secure massive concessions.”

Not only are the fans losing out but so are both sides in the conflict, so far they’ve collectively lost $100 million and will stand to lose substantially more over the next two weeks if the lockout continues. Hopefully they can reach an agreement and we can all get on with it. Till then it’s thumb-twiddling I guess. At least we still have UC Pioneer Hockey!
