I think both sides need to recognize the damage that another lockout will do to the sport of hockey, in general. And, I've already paid an arm and a leg for this seasons tickets - they better play!!

Well said!

I really thought there was hope last week, until the players gave up at Friday's meeting.

My son and husband are die hard Blues fans...with season tickets, jersey's etc. If there isn't a hockey season, I need to find another place to live this winter as there will be no joy in this household...just grumpy hockey fans who will be impossible to live with!

My thoughts exactly. The sport is just becoming huge. Why ruin it by risking new fans.

I"m so angry about another impending lockout. The third under Bettman. This guy needs to go. Both sides need to suck it up and get a deal done. None of this we're not talking BS. Obviously the fans are not a priority though we are some of the most loyal fans out there. The sport already gets no respect in the US in comparison to baseball & football and this is only going to hurt it more. Plus my Rangers are arguably the best team on paper in the East and I wanna see em play dammit!!!

That is pretty much what I was thinking. I am not a Canadian law expert but would the Quebec labor ruling be binding anywhere else? I don't see it having a bit of influence down here.

It could also be an issue in Alberta. If three of the more profitable teams in the league are forced to keep working I can't imagine their owners being to happy about paying players and staff without games to be played. It would make it more difficult for the owners to be united on a lockout.

I blame the players and the owners as well.

I am going to be heart broken if we loose another season due to greediness.

You gotta love Andrew Ferrence. OK... Maybe if you are a Habs fan and didn't like his "wardrobe malfunction", you get a pass. But the man has no filter.

Basically, he is saying "You guys don't want a season? Fine. We'll play over here."

Just imagine going to see your employer and stating that the percentage you are receiving is not fair. You are already receiving over 50%, how much more is enough? Perhaps the players can fund a league all by themselves?

Actually you could say the same thing happens in many labour negotiations. You also have to consider that this is a system of the owner's making and one they agreed to. It certainly hasn't stopped them from signing players to those rediculous long-term contracts while these negotiations have been going on.

The other thing to remember is that the lockout is completely driven by the owners and the league. The player had said they would continue to play while they negotiated a new deal.
