If the owners want a bigger piece of the pie than the players, it would be a crappy yet entertaining season, but let THEM go down and take the hits and checks. To the ice owners to the ice!!

Yes, I'm the sports world and I noticed. Not. Few people care about a hockey strike. Most people probably thought they were on strike already based on their ratings vs other sports.

It's clear that the NHL wants to break the union. With record revenues, and ridiculous contracts given out to players, how can the league and owners cry broke with revenue sharing? This is just another case of bad owners; i.e. Michael Jordan in the NBA, wanting to screw the players over to make up for their bad deals. This is not only going to last the whole season, but also into next summer.

NHL .... if you don't give the players the same deal you gave them last year will you lower the ticket prices or will the owners just pocket the difference??? It is getting way to expensive for me to attend games. I would love to go to every game but at $100+ a seat?? Give me a break

And, from all these lock-outs we have learned???? Money money money. 'Sport' has taken on a different meaning for me. Used to mean fun activity and challenge. Now means money.

Players cannot give in this time. They must force owners to face total loss of league and worthless franchieses.

The players want a 30 team league and Fehr has stated players willing to support that belief. Which franchises would be deemed worthless? I agree Phoenix needs to move. Glendale is a joke.

This wouldn't have happened if the NHL respected our National Sports Policy.  They don't fear us.  It's Obama's fault.

I think it's time for American's to just give up on professional sports. How much longer are you going to care when players and management (who are all 1%ers already) fight over how to split up their overpriced ticket revenues?
If you love sports go see a college game or the roller derby. I can't take my son to see the Denver Broncos because the "cheap" sears are hundreds of dollars. Baseball is better but good seats at the Rockies are still pretty pricey.
Let all these millionaires fight over the billions they get from selling tickets and television revenue. Stop going to the games and see how long they are worried about cutting up a pie that Americans no longer make for them. As far as I am concerned, these sports pukes are just more robber barons feeding off all of us.
Boycott professional sports until they realize that their fans are more than just numbers on their spreadsheets.

The third lockout under Bettman,wow this guy has brilliant management skills,and while the rich kids are fighting, people who REALLY depend on the income ( arena workers, businesses in the area) get screwed again. But then again do they care, I'm thinking not so much. Mr. Bettman needs a new pony.

The players, the owners and the league don't give a flying damn about the arena workers or the restaurants near the arenas. As long as they can charge $100+ a ticket so you can only afford to go to a couple of games a year and they all make millions a year who really cares?

Why are you lumping the players in - they wanted to keep playing while they negotiate. it's the league that's locking them out.

Unfortunately you are correct Dale. I had a conversation with a pub owner in downtown Detroit this summer regarding exactly that. He said that 40% of his annual revenue came during hockey season and that many in his business would not be able to survive this if it went on into the season. (Especially given the current economic climate in Detroit.) The last lockout caused the closure of many restaurants/pubs in the area.

Ya because all those Canadian tourists flock to LA, Phoenix, Dallas and Atlanta to watch their favorite franchise owners schmooze.
