Ladies And Gentleman We Are Headed For A Lockout

“Nein Nein Nein Nein NHL

 

BOSTON – With a lockout drawing ever closer, the NHL and the players’ union are in touch with each other after a day of internal meetings.

But no new negotiating sessions are scheduled for Friday, one day before Commissioner Gary Bettman has said he will lock out the players. This would be the NHL’s fourth work stoppage since 1992.

On Thursday night, NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly spoke to special counsel Steve Fehr, the brother of union executive director Donald Fehr. They did not, however, discuss a possible return to the bargaining table. The contract expires at midnight EDT on Saturday. Bettman has said the season won’t start without a new deal. Training camps are to open Sept. 21, and the season is to begin Oct. 11.

Kept it optimistic until there was no progressive news today. Bettman and the owners are pushing for a for sure lockout.  Its a shame that the players receive 57% percent of Hockey Related Revenue (which is what the owners are bitching about)… the players are the ones who drive the fucking league. give em what they want.

Bring Back the NHL Already.

It looks like Gary Bettman will be putting the league on hold if no deal is met by September 15. Well two words for you Gary Fuck you. I’m not even sure Gary Bettman is familiar with the sport of hockey, certainly he is not familiar with the consequences of a Lock out. With a statement like : “We recovered well last time [there was a lockout] because we have the world’s greatest fans.” This guy has to be one of the biggest douche bags on the planet.. The NHL recovered at a slugs pace last time when it remained locked out for 301 days. Surely us fans will come back to the sport because we love it, its most certainly not because of the NHL however. We couldnt give a fuck about Gary Bettman and the rest of the owners.

This is all I care about:
