    It takes both sides to sink a sports league and plenty of blame for this insane situation. The NHL does NOT have a huge national contract with upfront $$ to justify these salaries. Most teams do operate in the red.

    How is this acceptable ? Everyone like paying $70 a ticket for a Tuesday night November game ? The schedule is waaaaaaaay too long. 15 less games per season or you get a bunch of games with players just floating and saving energy.

    There is hope that if a deal can be reached by the 15th, they will be able to reinstate the winter classic... and it appears that many reporters have become optimistic over the weekend that a new deal will be reached before then

    Well, it looks like the adults have finally decided to negotiate...

    Drager is stating the NHL has pretty much presented it's final offer yesterday and we should find out today if this is going to threaten the season.
