Probably not for all of 2012. And it isn't even that, NHL is just becoming a laughing stock again even after record revenues. No hockey is one thing... The damage it does to the league's face and the fans is another.

If i see that "thank you fans" bullshit again...

This. To let this happen again, less than a decade after the last one...and at a time when the NHL is still trying to regain the national attention that was lost after 04-05...what the fuck.

OV agrees to play for HC Dynamo Moscow. Malkin, Kovalchuk, and Gonchar are on SKA St. Petersburg. Datsyuk and Bryz are CSKA Moscow (along with the Radulovs). Sucks that ovechkin didn't opt for CSKA.

Interesting...for whatever its worth....

Right after this happens:

Sonicsgate: YES!! @SeattleCouncil officially approves @sonicsarena by 7-2 vote. Still work ahead but this is HUGE! Thanks to everyone involved! #WeWin

Approval to build a new arena in the Stadium district for future NBA/NHL team(s)

This breaks....

IanKJR: Breaking. A group representing the #Edmonton Oilers, including team president, owner was in Seattle today taking a tour of Key Arena. #NHL

Seattle would be a good city to add a team too, but not at the expense of Edmonton.

Edmonton has issues with the city not wanting to fork over money for an arena. My guess is the ownership is pulling out all the stops so the city has to step in. The team isn't going anywhere.

Lemieux and co. did the same thing in Pittsburgh, it's purely a bargaining tactic. Don't see the team leaving EDM.

Hockey Canada trying to block Yakupov from playing in the KHL, saying his rights belong to Sarnia. Bullshit.

It's the IIHF trying to block him, not Hockey Canada. And they're trying to block him because he circumvented the rules to go play in the KHL.
