Ive been avoiding this forum because the NHL is beginning to irritate me with this looming lockout. It appears as if the other 4 people who post on this forum have been avoiding it as well.

We are 2 weeks from the players being locked out. My two favorite teams look very promising (Panthers and Canes). I just cant handle another lost hockey season. Especially when the Canes finally are able to spend some money. We have never had as many stars as we do now. Players are talking about going over seas. Great. They will all go to the KHL in Russia, make a TON more money, and who knows how many will come back. More money, endless voka, and a bunch of Anna Kournikova look a likes? Sign me up...


Some articles reporting progress...or lack thereof....

I to am extremely frustrated by the potential lockout. I'm ready for 'Canes hockey. I plan on being at the Home Opener...if it happens.

Started really getting into hockey the first year after the lockout, so I can't imagine going without for any extended period of time. Fugging Bettman! Unfortunately, in the US, even most hockey fans won't miss it too much until football season is over. Our only hope for a quick resolution, it seems, is for those eskimo fuggers up in the 51st state put the wrench to the league.

Canadian fans' influence > American fans' influence

On the plus side of the leagues hard stance...

Whenever a deal is reached, it sounds like the players' share is going to shrink dramatically. Which means that a bunch of good players are going to be available for cheap. Everyone knows Karmanos loves going the coupon route, even if he has the money this year.

Yeah this sucks. At least we have memories of the Stanley Cup. Honestly though, even if it's a shortened season, as long as they get to play and have the playoffs I'll be good.

I'm not superstitious and I don't want there to be a lockout, but I wouldn't go bat poo crazy if there was one. Die hard Canes fans remember that the Canes won the 05-06 Stanley Cup Championship, the year directly after the 04-05 lockout. Eerily similar...

No fan is ever in the mood for a lockout but a year removed from the NFL lockout and less than 10 years removed from an entire lost NHL season....this mess is irritating....
