I've been in hiding with Tim Thomas and his family until this was over. Good to be back. Let's drop the puck.

You can negotiate during the summer all you want, but the leverage of canceled games, gate losses and a potential lost season creates the type of leverage necessary to get a better deal.

Multiple reports indicate that Bettman only got serious when sponsors started holding his feet to the fire. Sadly, that's the sort of pressure things like this take, unless you have a Bob Kraft type step up and take the wheel.

For all the whinging and moaning, talk of 'payback' via fan boycotts, I think we'll find it will largely be business as usual for attendances at most clubs come Jan 19th. The Sabres reported a grand total of 13 people have cancelled their season tickets out of some 14,000 people (with a further 3000 on the waiting list). Tampa have apparently had just 50 people cancel theirs.

Yet since September ive been reading lockout articles footnoted with comments about how the NHL can go to hell. One hilarious Maple Leafs fan even declared he'd surrendered his centre ice gold's at the ACC in protest at Gary Bettmans stewardship of the league. Right. So the 50,000 long waiting list should get shorter by 1 eh? Nice going.

For all the fan vitriol, I can't see much being truly affected by this lockout. People just want their game back - and now we have it

Well finally!

Lockout sucked, but a half season is better than none.

Hopefully the B's are now well past their "Cup hangover".

Oh, and hello everyone again!

Lol right?

Well the NHL would do well to schedule all rivalries first thing

Devils Rangers
Pittsburgh Washington/ Flyers
Washington Carolina
Bruins Flyers/Montreal
Toronto Montreal/Buffalo
Buffalo Ottawa/Boston
Islanders Rangers
Tampa Panthers
Winnipeg Ottawa

Any of those combos for the east

Open up all games as rivalry games, make it a big deal over the weekend starting with the 19th

Just marathon them

Just a low rumble for now, but there are whispers KHL teams may be offering "inducements" to get RUS stars to stay and not return to NHL.

Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie
In last 24 hours, multiple sources told me NHL teams would do well to have roll call because it's possible a RUS player or two may not show.

Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie
Two things to keep in mind: 1. Many RUS stars publicly stated earlier this season they might stay the entire the year in the KHL.

Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie
2. NHL-KHL have post-Radulov pact to honor contracts. That said, been suggested to me this entire issue could heat up again. We'll see.

Mea culpa - didn't think a season would happen this year so good on the guys for making a deal.

Now I need to find a way to be a financial advisor to some of these NHL nitwits as owners have bailed on 16 matchups x 38 games x 15000 seats x 75 USD per seat avg = $648M gate for this fiasco.... and the players have given up $740M....

Apparently neither know how to count until you hit the 9 digit figures... could be Madoff Jr. without the prison bars and dropped soap with these yoyos...

Oh well, drop the puck and here's to seeing Lucic put Phaneuf thru the glass!!!

That will come to a head eventually I suppose. Aren't there only like 20-30 Russians in the entire NHL now?

Malkin is on a tear over there, he and Mozyakin have to be on pace to set some records. Have to wonder if he doesn't stay just to finish it off.

I'd love to see Malkin, Ovechkin, and Kovalchuk stay over there. It would make the conference a bit easier.

I'm going to miss the entire first week of the season sitting on the toilet reading the new CBA.

Anymore than 600 pages I may miss the first two weeks.

If they want to stay....let them. I don't blame them. It would certainly make our conference a little easier with no Ovy, Malkin, Kovy and Bryzgalov.....errr...nevermind on the last one, I REALLY hope that he comes back!

If they stayed over there while under an NHL concract, wouldn't that make them ineligible for the olympics? Or am I thinking of something else?

He has his reason to hate the bruins now. He may actually talk bruins this year.

The bruins winning the cup was the worst thing that happened to the Bruins air time on 98.5.

Hahahaha! Although, methinks the bear might be a bit groggy from its overlong hibernation and could probably do with a little poking.
