Not that we’re keeping score, but we’re coming up on the tenth week of this NHL lockout. We’ve missed a month of games so far, and it’s looking more and more like we’re just not going to see any hockey until January.
It’s looking more and more like the entire season is in jeopardy. And it’s crap, really.
After last week’s positive vibes, the two sides have engaged in a cold-shouldering for the first four days of this week. Then, this little gem:
Bill Daly says “I’m more discouraged now than I have been at any point in the process.” … … m.tmi.me/ze1Fj

Elated to hear that. Bill Daly says we’re in a rut. No kidding, Billy.
Expect one more big push. The two sides aren’t meeting this week, and it’ll be a tough sell to get them together during a shortened week due to American Thanksgiving. Barring a miracle by then, December’s games should be good and cancelled.
Check out the effort made in the last week of November and early December. If both sides are still not talking to each other, you can go ahead and mail that sucker in.
Having no hockey during hockey season sucks. It’s irritating, but the part that irritates me the most is that Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle’s final entry-level years are going straight to the toilet.
Shooting for January. After that, forget it.
