lockout is the correct term, not strike.

Really? I mean....really? I find it hard to believe that anyone can use that argument.

there's too much to lose, the big market owners would be idiots to lose another season at the hands of the crap market owners bleeding money. i'm not concerned yet.

That's really our only hope. It's utterly ridiculous that the league, the fans, the players, and the successful owners who are committed to keeping their teams competitive could end up having to bow to marginal owners in borderline NHL markets who can't compete without handouts from the winners in this league.

Playoff hockey has always garnered higher ratings and the biggest difference is the absence of goonism and fighting. You want to take the one exception, this years first round, and twist what the numbers say, to somehow conclude more people watched because of goonism and violence.

No other sport "benches" people who have played all season for the post season. People don't want to see Jody Shelley & Zac Rinaldo in the playoffs. Their style of play doesn't attract people to the game. Players like Giroux, Parise, Kovalchuk, Stamkos, etc are the ones people tune in for.

When the lights shine brightest and the ratings go way up, Rinaldo and Shelley are in the press box where they belong.


Yeah the ratings go up has nothing to do with the fact that it's the post-season. The part that actually matters in hockey.

Bible bashers like you are hillarious.

If it comes down to it, can't the owners just ask to extend the current CBA for another season? I cannot imagine these owners want a lockout when the NHL has never seen revenues like this before. This isn't the NFL, another lockout will seriously hurt this league.

Another lockout will set the NHL back 25 years. It's just flat out dumb from everyone involved.

However, it looks ever more likely that we will see one.

Postseason ratings in baseball go up. It's clearly because there's so much less fighting than during the regular season.

They could have done that but they let the NHLPA that they wouldn't be doing that

I'm at the age where I am to busy to care. I sat through enough of this nonsense. My money wont be contributing if there is any kind of delay.


'92 was short enough for me to say what the heck
'94 got me irritated but I came back
'04 I was upset over the flyers and then dealing with this but I decided to come back because of the old heads.

'12 not doing it again. the favorites I grew up watching are retired. I'm out.


edit: wow, I loved baseball almost as much as the NHL and it took me 10 years to start watching again. NHL got three chances and look at them getting ready to mess up

The one in 2004-05 saved the league.. But I agree, they shouldn't lock out
