It looks like the NHL and the NHLPA may not come to terms on Player’s contracts. I’m going to be very upset if a lockout happens.
Hockey is the one thing I look forward to in the winter. With the extremely cold weather, there’s nothing better than sitting inside a warm house watching a hockey game and drinking a cold one.
I think the NHL Player’s Association needs to accept the fact that salaries have ballooned over the years and are much higher than they should be.
If a lockout does occur, it’s only going to drive fans away, and the teams will end up making less money, and the players will end up making less money. It won’t do any good for the sport unless another league is created and they compete with each other. This may also not help anything either, as the prestige of professional hockey may decline in this scenario.
