    I can't wait until some idiot comes in and says "The players don't care about the little people, they are ruining people's families". Like the players employed the workers or are somehow their responsibility.

    I heard today on one of the vancouver stations that Mike Fisher from the Sens has signed a deal for the swiss tema he has been playing on for next year, withOUT a clause allowing him to return should the NHL wake up. Apprentley he was advised by the PA to "go ahead and sign"
    I havent found a link online or I would post it, did anyone else hear that?
    Could that a be another sign of things to come?

    I goes to show that they still need to get this deal done sooner, rather than later.. There is still work to be done in the offseason by certain people.. :shakehead

    Actually, yeah... thats about right.

    Its a job and when you can find blame with why you can't work at your job it's going to be obvious where you point your finger.

    What if you lost your job because others were making a money grab?

    He's been so busy apologizing for the deluded players, his compassion is all tuckered out.

    The players have a right to make their stand but their actions have consequences for which the players bear some responsibility. I'm sure the laid off parents in the hockey industry have been trying to explain this to their kids as they try to find a way to move on with their lives.

    In related news Modano has NOT sent me any money for my dog this month and again he must continue to eat table scraps to survive.

    this is going to sound very mean of me, however since no one knows who I am and its a free forum debate, I'll say this. Anyone who is still working for an NHL franchise is their own worst enemy if they didn't have a plan B, C or D once the lockout began. They mis-read the players, they mis-read the owners and while it is terrible when anyone losses their job, at the end of the day anyone working for an NHL franchise is living their life on the edge or the ledge

    The NHL deserves to get panned, but the fact is that in many cities, even south of the border, the ancillary folks are taking a hit, as the Boston Globe article below demonstrates. I'm a fan who still plays hockey and sees university games all over Boston, but I haven't lost income because of this stalemate. A friend of mine who works a concession stand in the FleetCenter said he would trade in the Celtics season for a Bruins season in a heartbeat. Hockey means better business and better tips.
