Are we going to see them play this year? I sure hope so. Seeing this happen again is incredibly frustrating - it almost broke the league last time and has an even better chance of doing so this time. Why wouldn't the players flock to the KHL where they can play this year, get paid well for it, and then not care to come back? This is especially true for the many players that are from that side of the pond. It is silly that pro sports keep coming to this same juncture over and over and over again. I was really looking forward to this season - every year, I make at least a handful of Blackhawks games, but usually only 1 at the United Center partially because we like to see new arenas/cities and partially because we like to sit up front and paying 3x face for up front at Chicago is silly. I always buy tickets at the last minute and always get stuck with big scalping. This year, I was smart enough to plan ahead and buy good tickets to games on ticket release day for face value. As it is likely to turn out, those tickets are worth precisely nothing - screwed again. :-(

Wow, no interest in the NHL this year, huh? lol. I got an email from the Blackhawks notifying me that if the season is postponed, my tickets will not be refunded, but rather they'll be pushed to a later game. That is complete BS.... I picked the games that I picked for a reason - I don't want to see random teams on random dates, especially since I am not local. Looks like I am going to be fighting for refunds.

I've just been so mad I can't really talk about it like an adult. So I ignore it and hope they'll get their heads out of each other's asses and let us have hockey back.

Well, there will be hockey on TV. ESPN has reached an agreement with the KHL to show games. Interested in seeing how this goes.

Oh, and I'm going to the first SF Bulls (ECHL) game tomorrow.

I think a decision has to be made by the end of next week. If they cancel Dec. games, then it's all done. Hockey is my favorite sport. But after the other stick and ball sports went through their delays and strikes, I'm kind of disinterested right now. I'm hardly following my local minor league team this year, the Providence Bruins. I've been watching more college games lately.

Negatory. How many of those players will take a shot to the head at 100mph, get stitched up and jump right out there to keep playing?

Presuming the CBA passes the vote, ESPN sources state it will be a 48-game season and it may start on January 19.

Edit: Owners voting on the CBA will be done on Wednesday.

Now all we need is for the sale of the Coyotes to Greg Jamison to be completed and I will be happier than Gallagher in a Farmer's Market!!

My first tickets ended up falling against the Kings in mid February. That should be a pretty fun game. I am looking forward to it
