NHL and NHLPA making moves...Who Cares?

So the NHLPA has voted in favor of filing a Disclaimer of Interest, who cares? The NHL owners filed a lawsuit of their own, who cares? The NHL cancelled all games up to January 14th 2013, who cares?

I don’t care about any of these things, I did at one point. I really was optimistic that we’d be watching the NHL by American Thanksgiving, nope, then I thought we’d see hockey on December 15, nope. Fool me once shame on you, Fool me twice shame on me, Fool me three times and #$%@ you. I really have stopped caring about watching the NHL. I have found other things to do with my spare time.

Now don’t get me wrong, I will be back watching when the NHL returns, but not with the same level of dedication that I had before. I would make plans around game nights to ensure I had free time to watch the games either on TV or at Rexall. I can’t see myself going out of my way like that, at least not right away.

So in the mean time I will do another update on the Oilers Abroad series, see how they are performing after the December breaks in the different European leagues, Spoiler alert…Hemsky is lighting it up with Pardubice.

I also have a few ideas on some OKC blogs and will have something to either celebrate or complain about with the World Junior tournament starting up next week.  Also if the NHL does get the stuff together and manage a shortened season, I think a discussion of what the fans can/will do when and if that happens.

I Would like to thank everyone for the support  I have gotten since joining the Oil on Whyte team, Jeff, Troy, Ian and Jonathan have been nothing but supportive. The readers, all 9 of you, thanks for paying attention, hopefully I can write about the things that you are interested in and keep you slightly entertained.

To All, have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.  Play Safe. Don’t forget if you indulge in the Holiday cheer please don’t drink and drive! I’ll leave you with a Christmas song that I guarantee will be stuck in your head! You’re Welcome
