I'm sure they'll reschedule it whenever both sides decide that it's time to start playing hockey again.
This is what I'm thinking. It's coming down to a bluffing game and both sides are being childish and ridiculous. It's like two kids fighting over the same ball by holding their breath until one passes out. Pathetic.
I really think at least a one month boycott by the fans at the start of whatever season we get is necessary. I am gonna cancel my LeafsTV for at least a while.
LOL @ people saying they're not disappointed and that the Winter Classic is boring.
It's like an ode to puck. How can you not love it? Especially when our team's involved.
What excites you about it? I'm sure in person it might be interesting. So far the best thing I've seen out of it is Shawn Majumder sneaking into the initial photo without any of the players realizing it. To me it has the appeal of the All Star game, which is just about zero.
The NHL is already a laughing stock in the US, this lockout only further solidifies that.
I hope it goes it longer than anyone expects. The NHL owners deserve it and more.
Honestly.. I don't care about the vast majority of Americans. I don't like American society or culture, and I heavily loathe how it dictates ours and other Western countries. The Country is a ****-hole, basically. Over half their major cities are crime-filled, no-go zones.
That said, I think we DO have some really amazing fans south of the border, and while some markets could use a lot more of them, I certainly don't want to end up sharing the same fanbase/culture as the NBA/NFL.
Being a niche Sport in America is just fine. Let's grow the game in Europe.
ive believed that the season will begin january 1st since their is too much money to be made/lost with this one game, if the nhl happens to cancel it then we can count on the whole season being cancelled
