In a move that surprises absolutely no one on Planet Earth, the NHL has cancelled the remaining preseason games in October.
The two sides are scheduled to get together this weekend for another round of negotiations. You don’t need 3D glasses to read that as “figure out how far away from each other they really are”.
Here’s hoping for less grandstanding, and some actual progress is made. Wouldn’t that be nice?

- Who doesn’t love Wayne Gretzky? The guy could run for any office, offer to coach any pee-wee team, ride a unicorn, cook, clean, and darn your knickers. Needless to say, he’s a fairly popular guy. That being said, I don’t know if I’m 100% on board with him not having any idea that Darryl Katz was “shopping around” in Seattle this past Monday. I mean, Gretz is probably just checking out a Seahawks/Packers game on Monday Night Football. No official business here. No sir. I’m going to walk away and whistle now.
Holding out hope that the worlds shift at this weekend’s negotiations.
