who cares it's a gimick game in the middle of the season, which probably would be in the bottom 10 games of the year in terms of quality of play.

Cancelling it already? But we're not even into November yet. They probably don't think they will have the time to get it ready even if they reach an agreement sometime in November. Or they just don't think they will get an agreement before the new year anyway.

They want to take that bargaining chip away from the players rather sooner than later.

We'll get it next season. We'll just have to wait another year is all.

We'll get it next season. The NHL promised Ilitch, and with the involvement of the Leafs they'll print money like never before.

To tell you the truth its likely too late for 24/7 to happen even if they were able to squeeze in the winter classic. I'd rather just skip the whole kit and caboodle this year and get all of it next year.

I'm sure they'll reschedule it whenever both sides decide that it's time to start playing hockey again.

Pretty much what I am hoping for right now.

I guess we can just get a good pick and roll with it for next season.

Agreed. As angry as I was, let's follow what this poster has to say.

Just go with the flow, we'll prolly get a good prospect in Mackinnon and have a good center to go with the flow

I believe I heard 24/7 just needed 4 weeks before the winter classic to do 24/7. Only 4 episodes and it's done weekly. Season starts Dec. 1, and we'd still get it.

Is it true we would just have it the next season or will it be two new teams and the Hockey Gods ****ed us over again?

Probably true. However the NHL believes the PA is using the Winter Classic as a pawn in the negotiations so they're just cancelling it to remove it from the equation.

Don't think that once they will re-open their doors that everything will be hunky dory for the whole league. This league is a huge joke.

Good. I've said since day one I'm not interested in being involved in gimmicks, especially ones that are usually of terrible quality. Leave it to the teams that need gimmicks.
