Do any of you have opinions regarding the state of the NHL right now?
In case you haven't heard, the NHL and the player's union are trying to renegotiate their contract. Training camps are already being delayed and there is a very real possibility that we will have a repeat of what happened in 94-95 where they played little more than half of the normal games due to a lock out. A far more frightening concept is where they were able to resolve the dispute eventually in 94-95, there is no garentee that they will do the same this year.
If you want links here is the statements issued by Commissioner Gary Bettman on Sept 15th: http://www.nhlcbanews.com/transcripts/p ... Sep15.html
And here is the link to the NHLPA (NHL Players Association) statement issued the same day: http://www.nhlpa.com/Content/FEATURES/f ... sp?ID=3362
So if you read these statements, do you have any opinions?
I'm finally back for the summer, although hopefully I'll spend a little more time away from this screen.
