I'm writing a 250 word article on the NHL lockout for my school paper....and since 250 words really isn't really that much, I need to figure out what aspects of the lockout to focus on in the rather small article. This is what I've decided to start it with....for now, at least: "Back on September 12th of this year, the decision was made that had become inevitable by that point: NHL commissioner Gary Bettman made the announcement that the NHL players would be locked out, and there would be no NHL season until further notice." I know I'm going to go into how the topic of a potential salary cap is the main reason for the lockout, and briefly outline the NHL and NHLPA's stance on the issue. Other than that, I'm not really sure what to put. Absolutely any recommendations or help would be greatly appreciated.
