The devils sure as shit can't. My guess, along with others, is that if there is a lock out, it will end the day after thanksgiving. The reason for this is it is the first NBC game. The game has the Rangers vs. Bruins. In order for the NHL to fulfill their 200 million dollar contract with NBC, they must air all the NBC games. The NHL does not want to piss off NBC.

That is my fear now. When they were in talks more regularly, I was hopeful. But when it slows towards d-day like this it usually means someone has bent as far as they feel they can.
technically, all the games I watched on Versus are NBC now too. While 200 Mil sounds like a lot, shared among all the clubs and the NHL big wigs, it is not all that much. Especially when they can't fill the seats.

True, but you have to imagine, NBC has a shit ton invested into the interest of the NHL. The last thing the NHL can afford right now is to piss off NBC. That could cause issues down the road.

Yep, cause everyone else knows there are not enough of us now as it is. They won't pay that to show the NHL. We have NESN so who cares around here. But other places it will be darkness. They just cannot afford to play this out this way. Cooler heads need to get in the room.

I would love to see the players make a 3 year agreement to take 45 percent if Bettman is either fired or agrees to resign as commissioner.

NBC sports (used to be VS) starts right away, but they are increasing their NCAA games I'm guessing to keep us hockey fans going. Sadly my school wont be on unless they get into the semi finals of the hockey east tournament.

+1 about Buttman.

Is that 45% of the net or gross?

Dear NHL. Third strike and you're out. I'll even start watching the NBA again.
And I won't come back. I mean it.

I saw those pics. Somehow I don't feel those fans reflect the 3+ billion in revenue. The only winners in this are the KHL, OHL, AHL, and WHL

Those greedy fuckers better wake up, smell the coffee and figure that out.
We're not going to take this bullshit from them again.

Not even an eleventh hour session on the horizon......

Just when they were recovering from the last time they did something stupid like this. I hope the players are working on their handicaps, they are going to want a new gig to be paid big money.

I know it is easy to accuse the owners of being greedy. There are some franchises that are very solvent, and then there are the others. It makes it difficult, to say the least. I don't think they are being dishonest in saying they just can't do it. Sure, there are teams that could, I understand that. But it is a league of teams.

It is just sad. Criminals on hardwood get so much and hockey players....peanuts.
