Where’s The Urgency?

According to this report, the NHL has suggested to the players that they take a two week break from negotiating. Assuming this happens, that pretty much wipes out all of November and means hockey would probably not start before the middle of December.

Do these people understand what is happening here? We should be six weeks into the season, but we aren’t.  And it isn’t just the players and the owners who are hurting, small businesses are hurting and the Canadian GDP could be affected.  Meanwhile, for all but the die-hard fans, hockey is something that is completely off their radar.

It’s amazing that two sides with a $3-billion pie can’t figure out a way to equitably split things up. It’s even more amazing that they won’t even sit down and try and talk about things while the clock ticks down to zero.
