On the NHL lockout

I'd imagine people reading this blog are wondering what my views are on the current NHL lockout. I have to say, I'm pretty much with the NHLPA on this one. The players are the ones who have dedicated their lives to hockey, dragging themselves to early morning practice as teenagers and enduring the physical punishment of an 84 game schedule now. Yeah, they make a lot of money, but let's not resent them for it. Better them than the fat cats in the board rooms. Let's find out what their salaries are.

And don't buy the ticket-price argument. Do you think prices will go down with a salary cap? How much were tickets for the World Cup? Hundreds of dollars, right? How much did the players make? Nothing.
