What concerns me more than anything is Bob McKenzie's assertion that the lockout could go into the season after this one. The NHL isn't doing that great in the USA. It will always be solid in Canada, but consider the amount of coverage it gets even here in the northern markets of the United States. It could smell near death for our league if that happens.
That's really the underlying reason behind these lockouts. The league keeps running the ship aground and then digs into the players pockets to get it moving again. These lockouts exist because the league pushed hockey into markets that might not support a team. Now they expect the players to pay for that idea.
