All Star Game and all December games through the 14th Canx'd:

NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said the league had planned to cancel the games last week, but wanted to wait to see how talks to get a collective bargaining agreement with the NHL Players' Association went this week before a decision was made.

"The reality of losing more regular-season games as well as the all-star weekend is extremely disappointing," said Daly in a statement. "We feel badly for NHL fans and particularly those in Columbus, and we intend to work closely with the Blue Jackets organization to return the all-star events to Columbus and their fans as quickly as possible."

The league has now lost a total of 422 games, or 34.3% of the regular season. Commissioner Gary Bettman estimated the league is losing $18-to-$20 million per-day in revenues while the players are losing approximately $9 million.



If that's the case, the league has lost more than $1.2 billion in business while the players losses are at $630 million as the lockout reaches Day 70.
