Finally, some one who acknowledges that a union can be at fail. People constantly say "the greedy owners"... When its the players getting the 57% revenue split, no? The owners are asking that it be similar to what other pro sports leagues have establish and I don't think there is anything wrong with that.

The union is without a doubt mostly to blame for this lock out. The players are to blame. To them, going over seas and collecting a fact paycheck is just fine. We suffer, the team suffers, the sport in the united states suffers.

If Nash is seriously injured and this lock out goes a full season I am no longer going to watch hockey in the NHL. 20 years I have been following this team. Im barely old enough to have any memories of the 1994 cup run outside of a vivid few, but I have been watching hockey since I was 4.

This should have been a serious year of contention for the Rangers and between Gaboriks injury and now a potential Nash injury and lock out, this could be a null year for the entire NHL. Sorry to vent again folks its just unbelievably frustrating and if any one here knows the pain, its you guys.
