NHL cancels 82 regular-season games

You just got more time to brush up on the Canadian national anthem.

The National Hockey League on Thursday canceled all regular-season games through October 24 as its labor dispute with the NHL Players' Association drags on. Regular-season games were have to begun October 11. A total of 82 games were scheduled between then and October 24.

    I sure hope the millionaires and billionaires can reach a compromise soon so I can forgo groceries one week and take my family to a game.

    Not to mention all the people who are involved with the running of the stadiums...concessions, janitorial, security...these people are affected, too.
    Not like we can go and get replacement players...

    Greedy NHL seems to be worse than all the other sports. I think this may last the whole season actually, but I hope for a compromise.

    Banasy good point. There can be many stakeholders in labour disputes. In the case of pro sports, only the players and owners have a voice at the table. The other stakeholders – non-playing employees, arenas, cities, sports media, restaurants and bars, and especially the FANS – aren't even allowed in the room.

    Well, another sport to boycott because of greed. I am out. Hey you over there on the skates having a good time – if I can make what I make, you sure can get by on what you make. Stop the greed. You are putting people out of work at the rinks.

    You could give Bettman a $100M winning lottery ticket. And he'd find a way to bungle on collecting the winnings. And then afterwards, not even care.
