Both sides are to blame for this. I think this shortened season was the plan all along. The NHL makes very little revenue in October / Movember.
Otherwise, why wouldn't they do these discussions in August?
Here's to hoping for another year of trash talking between the northeastern corridor teams (I'm gunning for you ovechkin fanboys!) and hopefully Nashville can continue their momentum, and for christs sakes can we get stamkos into the playoffs??
Go Rangers! Hopefully the new deal allows the Rangers to spend money like pacman jones in a strip club.
I kid, I kid, the league sucks when only 4 teams are good, hopefully they don't frick up the parity.
