NHL UPDATE

 

Well, once again empty hope for the 2012-13 NHL season as games are nixed through November 1st.

ESPN – It is the second round of game cancellations since the lockout went into effect Sept. 19. Earlier this month, the NHL eliminated the first block of regular-season contests through Oct. 24. A total of 135 games are canceled, which amounts to 11 percent of the season.

“As expected,” New York Rangers goalie Martin Biron told The Associated Press in a text message. “We continue to work hard to find an agreement and get back to playing hockey.”

Also, these games are not necessarily lost yet.. they are technically postponed while the possibility to squeeze 82 games into the season still exists it is highly unlikely.

All I know is my fantasy football team has been better than ever strictly because i haven’t lost concentration in October like most years before… Thank you NHL.

 

 

 

 

“Hockey” Is Back!

Easy Wayne.

It’s the KHL…  For folks not familiar with the “Kontinental Hockey League” It’s a watered down version of the hockey we know and love.

The KHL premiered yesterday with a 1:00 pm broadcast on ESPN2.. the game featured stars like Zdeno Chara, Alex Ovechkin and Marian Hossa. However, outside of Ovie’s 3rd period game winner the game was scoreless and uneventful.

Oh yeah and you read that right.  ESPN the Deuce.  So sad…

END THE LOCKOUT
