It's already bad enough with Twitter and radio interviews and whatnot, but you know that Reporters will be picking up on their Twitter quotes and conducting interviews, and we're going to be treated to a whole bunch of "I just can't believe they cancelled the season. We were here, we were ready to negotiate, we just needed a willing partner."

And we'll see the NHL's response as, "We told the Union our final date, we attempted to resolve the dispute before then but just couldn't come to an agreement. But they shouldn't be shocked, we told them what would happen if there wasn't an agreement."

And us fans are left standing there wondering how these Millionaires and Billionaires let some Pension details and what is amounting to 150 million (extra $5 million in cap space per team) derail any form of an NHL season.
You forgot to put the word "disappointed" in the NHL's response...
