Deadline expires; NHL locks out players

"NHL season could be abandoned due to labour dispute." I feel like this isn't even news any more.

My feelings are the same as always: don't feel bad for the owners, all of whom are independently wealthy, to say the least; don't feel bad for the players, the NHL salary minimum is something like $500,000. Even the fans can suck it up. The people who're really losing out in this are folks whose livelihoods depend on the league in other ways: journalists who cover it; folks who run the concession stands at the games, and everyone in between.

Yes. This.

Thank you.

weren't they just locked out last year too? or was that the year before? i'm losing track.

Yeah. A couple of my friends are big hockey fans, so have mentioned this, but I (and most of my friends) would absolutely agree with you.
