Why would the US dollar gain against the Canadian dollar when the US is in as bad a financial condition as Greece?
I am not talking soon ,, But it isn't unreasonable to expect your economy to suffer down line and for US to recover at some point
And my point is that NHL trying to make it work in these markets financially is no different then NHL bailing out Ott/Edm/Cal in late 90's ,, A fact many people up North in there hate for Bettman/NHL seem to forget
And I mainly get annoyed with constant bashing of Car and Nashville
Both fanbases have been grown from ground up and made progress ,, I think both are good longterm markets for NHL thus why we need more patiance
I can say Nashville of today is vastly different of Nashville 10 years ago ,, The growth of hockey in the Tennessee area as a whole has been nice to see

i want to be optimistic, it's nice that after a PA offer, the owners aren't sitting on it and are going right back with their own counter but this entire lockout has been spun so many potential positive ways.
]A deal will not be struck until the latest possible time to kick off the season. [/B] It's just blatantly obvious now. So may as well just wait for that day and not read much of what's going on.
I've believed this for quite some time . While i can't stand Fehr he's not an idiot like the previous NHLPA head was . He'll squeeze as much as he can out of the owners and then settle . There's nothing to be gained from losing the season .
