in their quest for their collective self-interest, what both sides are forgetting, is the damage and complete disregard for the integrity of the game.

sure, the NHL will make money again, but so do WWE, The Amazing Race and Survivor. The NHL is closer to these then to the NFL, NBA and MLB.

the NHL is not and, in my mind, will not be a serious sport for a very long time.
