I've said it before, but I'm pretty happy that they're axed the WC before a shortened season.
In an atmosphere where the players and owners are pissed, businesses have a tenuous trust in giving ad$ to the NHL and fans lack the enthusiasm to come back to the game.... it would have been a total dud for one of the biggest planned events in the NHL's history.

But, yeah, they started pushing to save the season far, far too late. Incomprehensible.
