This morning I woke up and logged onto reddit. The first thing I saw was "NFL AND NFLRA REACH DEAL." I was so tired I thought it said NHL at first and then got upset. Half because it wasn't the NHL, and half because I'm a Seahawks fan...

Don't worry DFS30, the NHL announced 3 F'n days ago that they'd meet with the union on Friday. Talk about no urgency. They're all pieces of sh!t.

Seriously, it's embarrassing.

The NHL is now locked out again, and I have yet to even hear about it on sportscenter or anywhere else. Granted, they haven't missed a regular season game yet, but still.

They're only hurting the fans and employees. Selfish millionaires.

Lovely, a$$holes.

"The NHL canceled the rest of the preseason Thursday, just a day before negotiations were set to resume in an effort to end the lockout."

I was so looking forward to getting back from deployment - specifically cause I get back right before the season would have started. Football just doesn't cut it, damn it... What is there to look forward to now? I wanted to go to Panthers games with my new away Henrique jersey on. Damn it, damn it, damn it.

At least I'll finally be able to pick up NHL13, I guess. I'll just watch the ECF GM6 everyday since it's the only thing I was smart enough to DVR.

Rick Nash hurt his shoulder playing in Switzerland, doesnt sound too bad but still shows the danger of having players play for someone else.

Yeah, the Devils had both Elias and Gomez sustain serious injuries - when both happened they were looked at as career-threatening. Between that and both Niedermayer and Stevens leaving, it was a pretty brutal lockout. I'm glad there aren't that many Devils playing elsewhere.

Not yet, but I'm sure there'll be more going overseas once regular season games start officially getting canceled after this weekend.

So far I think Kovy and Zidlicky are the only two to go overseas, while Henrique/Larsson/Josefson are in Albany.

"The Devils have high standards, that's the difference. We have a standard to live up to every year, and a couple of teams in our area don't have the standards we do." - Pat Burns

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

At some point I am going to get the NFL package instead of Center Ice. They are about the same price this year.

I was considering making this a seperate thread. However I figured this fits more in here since this concerns the lockout.

I am 100% convinced that we will not have a cancelled season. Of course I have no facts to back this up - it's just something that I feel within my heart of hearts and is my personal opinion. If it is a shortened season however I feel that history will be on our side. I posted the following on my facebook as a "rally cry" I guess you could say - with the lockout being longer then we all expected it to be I wanted something that would at least amp people up...to look forward to the future:

As we head deeper & deeper into this NHL lockout let us not only hope that a resolution comes soon but let us remember. Remember who was the last team to win the Stanley Cup during a SHORTENED season, remember how that win came after a disappointing loss the year before, remember how that team soon after that quickly established themselves as one of the most successful non-original six clubs in NHL history and most importantly remember that history tends to repeat itself.



Also, whoever is in charge of that McKay account makes simply amazing videos.

Glad to hear they care and made an attempt to voice their opinion even though it wont make a difference.

Wow, I actually give kudos to the senators. I didn't think they even noticed.
And I guess we have that 'at least their talking' mentality, but it's so hard to be optimistic.

While I hate Brooks' most times as he is the shill of shills for the players, I did like his article on Sunday.
Especially: "It is the No Hockey League, all right, the one that locks its doors not as a last resort but as a matter of course upon the expiration of labor agreements.."

Bettman is a cancer for this league & I just wish he'd go away.

Bettman has nothing to do with this. If he weren't there, some other guy would be.

I don't think the league will do this, I think it's just Watters blowing smoke. Replacement players don't work. The league's value is almost totally tied up in the current players.

I always had a level of optimism that these two sides would get a deal done in time. So, to see that we are this stage just floods me with disbelief at how stupid and stubborn the two sides are - that they would risk killing all the momentum and gains the league has made since the last lockout. (I side with the players but the fact that BOTH sides cant hold a meeting longer than two hours is unacceptable).
