Want to know who to blame? Blame everybody. The players and the owners both have made a circus out of this. No other sport, no matter how contentious the negotiations, have ever been as content to lock out of games.

Bettman coming out and saying "we'll recover, we have the best fans in the world", is much like a drug dealer coming out and saying "we have the best junkies in the neighborhood", because the weasel KNOWS that the vast majority of us couldn't tune out if we wanted to tune out. NHL fans are a rare breed.

Salaries are as high as they've ever been, revenue is as high as it has ever been.... what are we fighting about? A few percentage points one way or the other? Please. Call it down the middle and own all this faux shoulder shrugging about who's fault it is.
