The Stanley Cup will become like the World Cup at the rate we are going. It will only be awarded every fourth year.

I think the league would have to fold before it could pull off a 3-year lockout, but I get your sentiment. I have no faith in the league either. The owners are mostly to blame, with Bettman as their puppet, but the players union has demonstrated a level of ineptitude that deserves some criticism as well. In the end it's just the wrong combination of people involved if you're hoping for the fans to be high on the priority list. I never thought I'd consider 'unfollowing' the NHL, but the they are providing some serious taunts that are pushing me in that direction.

So if the season is shortened, there's no reason you should pay full price for CI. And if it did come down to that, I will cancel it out of principle.

I prefer they play all 82 games (on time) or not at all.

If the season is canceled, they can work on some of the other issues like realignment, suspensions, goal reviews, front-loaded contracts etc. I may be less interested in the NHL when they come back, but I don't want to see a half-assed season.

Horrible leadership by the NHL and NHLPA is one of the many reasons why the NHL will never be able to surpass the MLB, NFL and NBA.

Yes because Donald Fehr was involved with the previous two lockouts.

It'd be nice if we can just get rid of this pipe dream of the NHL competing with MLB, the NFL or NBA.

Just got back from the rink, skated with Severyn for a bit. I asked him if we'll have a season this year, he says that he talked with Nieuwendyk and that there won't be games until at least December.

How awesome would it be if the Wings won the lottery when they do the redraft after this year is cancelled?

If they are not back at the very start of December that pretty much cancels 24/7. Which while not nearly as important as just having hockey in general, really was something I was looking forward to though.

Donald Fehr isn't exactly known as a guy that bargains in good faith or wasn't involved in contentious labor disputes before in the sporting world.

Meant December, but they have to be playing games for them to do it. I would guess it really has to be earlier, maybe November 1st as a drop dead date by HBO, curious to see what they think on it. But guessing they don't just show up and need to know by a certain time period before they pull the plug. By the way HBO almost didn't pick this season up anyway, so an NHL lockout likely kills this for good which is upsetting as I really enjoy it every year, part of the reason I am so excited to watch the Wings on it.

Same here. I was really looking forward to seeing the Wings on 24/7. I thoroughly enjoyed the previous two incarnations. I'm pretty sure if this one is cancelled, you can kiss the NHL/HBO partnership goodbye.

“We have been advising the players to prepare for a couple of years for a worst-case analysis,” Fehr said. “You always do. You hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.”

The Mayans were right. 2012 is the end of the world.

Man until now I have been taking the whole issue lightly but it seems certain...

Sad the fanatics like (us) who wait for each game will suffer the most. I guess I'll see you guys at the Plymouth Whalers board....

Man, I so under appreciated having the Whalers when I lived five mins away from Compuware - would kill to have a legit Junior team in Chicago. There is the Steel in the USHL, but that is almost at O'Hare, and can't get there by public transportation.
