Still No Season

The NHL and NHLPA are still bickering over how to split their billions of dollars while the fans of hockey sit on the sidelines waiting. It's been a rather frustrating experience and I'm sure I'm not alone in saying that. With games now cancelled up to the end of Nov, we are definitely not going to see a full 82 game schedule. I personally do not see any resolution to this madness coming any time soon anyway and I didn't have much hope for a season when the lockout first started.

With regards to the WTHL, there are still matters to fully hammer out before the start of next year (should we lose the full season). A proposal has been made on how to handle contracts and the like, but it has not been fully set in stone as of yet. While nobody has commented on the proposed actions, some have vocalized their discontent and it's likely the rules will go up to a vote... like anything else we've ever done in the league.

With that in mind, be sure to check out the league page on Yahoo and read what those contract changes are,and please provide some feedback should you not like what you read, or even if you do. We have until next spring to fully hammer things out, none the less, but it's good to know what's coming up for the league and how people feel about it... that is, should any of us even care about hockey any more by then. It feels like we should all boycott the fuckers... but that's a rant for another day.
