With some luck the NHL will cancel this season and give us our money back....
So in a regular, full-length season... screw the homeless?

This attitude always gets me with regard to this lockout - people getting all moral about how not having hockey is going to make them a better person. Whatever.


Anyway, I'm encouraged by recent developments in discussions/negotiations, as well as the outlook of some contacts I have at Nationwide Arena. (I also love that Pens haters and Crosby haters in particular might have to deal with the idea that Sid and Ron Burkle had a significant role in moving things forward. But that's just me.)

I can't help but keep coming back to why the same level of diligence couldn't have been employed at an earlier date. Oh, I know the explanations, but I think they're a bunch of crap.
