Selfish, like those hockey fans (including children) in hospices across North America, who would love to forget about their problems for a few hours a day? Watch the Canucks for a final season?

There is more than enough selfishness to go around... Owners, players, dying fans... There is no excuse for hockey not to be played January, IMHO... Up until this point, I totally understand the labour dispute, and the need for pressure points to get everything you can, out of everything you have... But if the owners and the players can't figure it out by January (and a season is cancelled), the owners and players both put themselves above everything else, selfishlessly...
