Enough already. As a fan, I am sick of this. You guys do remember us fans, right? We are the ones paying for $20 parking and $12 beers?

Just wanted to remind the owners that without fans, all they own is the rights to some nice logos and a lease to an arena somewhere. I guess you guys could have bead shows-or maybe RV/Camper Expos.

And players- without fans you are just a bunch of overpriced figure skaters wearing the same color shirts.

fark you Jeremy Jacobs. fark you MLSE. fark you Ed Snyder. fark you George Gillette. fark you Craig Leopold. fark you each and every one of you owners who killed a season eight years ago to get what you wanted, made things much better, and turn around and say it isn't good enough.

I hope when Gary gets sick of his bosses' shiat, he goes on TV and just rips them a new asshole.

/it's the owners that are the real problem

The new affiliation with Hershey/Washington should help the Royals out talent-wise. Between that and the lockout, they could really clean up.

I can actually go to their games without breaking the bank, too.

As a Leafs fan I was kinda 'meh' about the upcimong season anyways. The last strike killed a lot of my enthusiasm for the league and this one won't help either.

I am in a fortunate geographical location as Windsor, London, and Sarnia are all within an hour's drive so I'll have no problem getting my hockey fix from the OHL.

yookaloco: This will more than likely retire Brodeur. Bastards.

El Brujo: I don't have a team to watch here in Seattle. Some Canucks games here and there, but I don't like the Canucks. I like the Blackhawks but only see the nationally televised rarities. If we had a team to watch on a regular basis I'd be following for sure.

alienated: oh, and those of us that do that, in a non major market without a team to go see, even peewee or high school ? we are the hosed people in this

Indeed, there's not a whole lot of ice here in KY in the deepest winter let alone hockey in it's natural state. IF it's below 20 degrees F for 2 weeks (3 preferably) the tiny (30' diameter) pond in my backyard freezes hard enough that we can go out on it & play our annual game of broomball/hockey. This condition tends to last at most about 3-4 days so the most has to be made of it. However it is "hockey" at home & it is wonderful. Around here you have to make the best of whatever you've got.

More on point, the closest NHL team (CBJ) is 2+ hours away & even if it were possible to easily break away to get to a game, there's nobody around here to go with. There is a couple of high school teams north of town but that's still an hour away. There is a halfway decent ECHL level team somewhat closer but their & my schedules rarely seem to mesh. It's a hockey wasteland here, Fark & other online places to chat combined with streamed games are my salvation. This pissing contest between different groups of pampered millionaires is really making me wonder why I bother in the first place.

/this will probably completely kill Selanne's chance to get 700 goals. For that alone I'll curse the names Gary & Don for eternity

This is the perfect time for all Greater Boston area hockey fans to support the Providence Bruins by going to their games. It's only an hour away from Boston and it costs less to see their games. Plus that area of Providence is nice.

Bettman needs to get his head out of his arse. The owners were / are still signing contracts and extensions. So are these all now null & void? If the owners are so bothered about the huge contracts they are signing then don't sign them.

I have a proposal for them: 45% revenues to each side the left over 10% goes to the weaker market teams as part of the revenue sharing.

Leave the FA alone.

I'm exactly the kind of guy who should be a huge NHL fan: I play recreational ice hockey, live in Detroit, used to watch every game each season. The last lockout turned me from an obsessive fan into a casual one. This lockout might make me completely stop caring.

Of course the only problem is the Wolves are Vancouver's affiliate, so I can't root for them when they play the IceHogs

/Because the Canucks are all a bunch of whiny biatches and they suck, that's why

This better not go on too long this time.

In the meantime, may try to get to Bridgeport (nearest AHL team) for my hockey fix.

Damn It! Hockey was just starting to recover from the damage done during the last strike and gain popularity again. It seems like Bettman is on a mission to kill the sport, not help it. Pay the players and try to get some better TV contracts.

This sucks. Two years ago I moved from a hockey desert (Topeka Roadrunners and that's it, no NHL team on local TV), to a place where I can see 4 NHL teams regularly (Sabres/Rangers/Islanders/Devils), and I've been loving it. I truly hope they can get this worked out quickly.

If not, go Syracuse Crunch!

We've got pro soccer finally on the national scale, and although highly successful it bores the ever loving shiat outta me. I've tried and tried, even with EPL and the other big leagues. That sport will never do anything for me. But, good for the scarf wearing weenies who finally get a sport of their own to get drunk for.

Football is king for me, but I really like NHL. I think we'll get a team as the new stadium deal is progressing again. The whole thing, though, is about getting NBA back to Seattle first and foremost. I don't give a shiat about NBA. I'd rather watch a rugby match where I don't fully understand the rules than a basketball game.
