NBA/NFL lockout and its impact on the NHL & Rangers

It's looking more and more likely that the NBA will be entering a lockout which some like the Blazers VP feel could be a very long one. He said til 2013.

This could very well be a turning point for the NHL in terms of any competition it had with the NBA. At midnight Thursday one league will be on the verge of a lockout while at 12 in the afternoon the next day the other league is looking at a free agent frenzy that looks to be an exciting one.

Now as far as the Rangers are concerned. I think this is going to make Dolan focus on this Rangers club much more than the Knicks in the short term. Whether he has influence to the extent he had on the Stoudemire and Carmelo transactions for the knicks remains to be seen. Dolan is probably giving Sather the full green light to spend and do whatever it takes to make the Rangers a contender for this coming season...just have to be smart with whatever we do. Listen to Torts please

This NBA situation is looking real gloomy -- but you never know how these things can turn.

I don't want Dolan involved in any of the hockey decisions, just let them spend to the cap every year, and that should be his role for this team haha.

I go on NBA fourms and post on it, everyone is saying watching hockey is the last thing they would want to do. They didnt exactly say that but just stuff like that. If they watched 1 game they would fall in love with hockey. but w.e wont affect me.

I am so sad right now.

But if things play out right the NHL could be the only major sport in October and November and that would be great for the NHL.

It may even give the players more leverage after the CBA expires after this year.

It seems they are inching closer to the NFL being resumed, have to think that gets done soon. The NFLPA wouldn't have let Goodell speak to the rookies yesterday if things were not looking good.

Good call Supersonic; for the past five years at my stupid job (when will this economy get better already? ) all I hear from these peeps is how I'm "being too nice to the Rangers/NHL" and how they "d*cked me over by cancelling an entire season" when they forget baseball cancelled the second half in 94 and now this stuff going on and the fact that the cap keeps the Rangers in check and along with first Tom Renney and Gordie Clark/Jeff Gorton/John Tortorella are the best things to happen to this franchise since the mid 90s.

This is a chance; if the Rangers are good this year, they'll OWN this city.

What is poor Mike Franseca gonna do? Either have to talk hockey or have it be a horse racing show

This is a big chance for the NHL to get into the mainstream. They gotta jump on that.

Honestly, I don't care about the NBA, but I want the NFL to play. The possibility of the NBA and NFL having a lockout can be good for getting the NHL on the map.

Well all games on MSG rather than watching the awful MSG PLUS 2 in SD for some games is going to be great.

I've had people at past jobs tell me hockey is a joke and football or baseball is the greatest thing ever.

The way i see it is, we hockey fans know hockey will never be THE sport, and will always be second fiddle to NCAA Football and NFL, and MLB... but we love our sport, we are loyal rabid fans. And our sport isnt going anywhere, and neither are we.

I want to see where THEY will be after a lockout.
