NHL cancels another week of games

National Hockey League fans are going to have to wait at least an additional week to see their teams in action.

The NHL, involved in a labor dispute with the players' union, said Friday that it was canceling another week of regular-season games, through November 1.

The league already had canceled games through October 24. The regular season was supposed to begin October 11, but the league locked out the players amid unsuccessful negotiations over a collective bargaining agreement.

Preseason games also were canceled this year. The last time the NHL canceled preseason games was in 2004, preceding a yearlong lockout of the players by the owners.

A total of 135 regular-season games were scheduled for October 11 through November 1.

    I’m in league with the working man in his struggle against the oppressive exploitive managerial class. Join me, reader, in the quest for social conditions based upon the sharing of property! Make the rich pay their fair share.

    Why can't they cancel a boring sport like Basketball instead of Hockey? There's nothing on TV now.
