I'll miss the NHL, but we have a couple of the best Junior franchises in the country in Ottawa and Gatineau, so we'll still see some high calibre hockey. Also, I wouldn't be surprised if Binghamton played some games at the Corel Centre.

I love the hell out of my Kings. My local hockey sucks both here and at home (see: Blades, Saskatoon and Terriers, Yorkton), so I'll really miss it. I guess I could pay more attention to the AHL and really get to know the Manchester Monarchs kids instead.

All-in-all, though, I'm one very sad Saskatchewanian... :cry:

Gatineau sucks. GO MOOSEHEADS! :D

But yeah, junior hockey is a worthwhile distraction.

Bettman and Goodenow, I HOPE YOU'RE HAPPY! YOU DID NOTHING TO PREVENT THIS. A HANDFULL OF MEETINGS BEFORE THE CBA EXPIRES? THAT IS NOT EVEN AN EFFORT TO DO ANYTHING TO SAVE THE GAME! How dare you ruin a sport which in 1993-94 was even considered by Sports Illustrated to be better than the NBA. Now, more than anything, you gave the NBA more exposure now that the NHL is out.

THANKS FOR NOTHING! LITERALLY.

(Now to break out my 250 game tapes, because that's all the hockey I'll see this season.)

BTW, how is it the when the Sharks have a great year prior to the end of the CBA, they can't build on it thanks to the NHL and NHLPA?

Ask the Montreal Expositions. They might be able to help you cope with the letdown. ^_^

That said, I'm thoroughly pissed off. I was actually looking forward to my Rangers having a bunch of excited young guys rather than a bunch of overpriced, overhyped Russian has-beens.

I meant in the sense that a Buffalo fan would tell a New England fan that they suck.... ^_^

Well, this makes me sad. Unlike some of you there is no minor/junior option living in northren NJ (the nearest minor league team is in treaton, 2 hours away. And the games aren't on tv as they are an echl team).

Bettman and Goodenow, I HOPE YOU'RE HAPPY! YOU DID NOTHING TO PREVENT THIS. A HANDFULL OF MEETINGS BEFORE THE CBA EXPIRES? THAT IS NOT EVEN AN EFFORT TO DO ANYTHING TO SAVE THE GAME!

That makes me think of a conspiricy as the NHL commish once worked for the NBA.

Overall, I have to side with players on this on a little bit. You negotiate to come to a fair agreement. The players didn't want a cap, however they said and proposed a luxury tax, something that could be just as effective (as weve seen this offseason as team didn't pay out big contracts, which shows the owners can control themselves. A luxury tax and no game missed is better than a lock-out with games missed and getting a hard cap. I don't understand why the owners won't go with a luxury tax and then try to get a hrad cap in the next CBA. That would help the game and be better for the game.

Yeah, but the disparity in records was too much to let pass. :D

I don't really give a crap about the Olympiques, but they were a lot better than the 67's last year.
