Today, the NHL announced the cancellation of all its games through November 30th. The cancellation brings the total of NHL games canceled this season to 326. This situation just gets more infuriating with each passing day. Also take in the fact that the NHL and NHLPA hardly speak, and that adds more fuel to the rage fire.
If no agreement can be reached by sometime next week, the NHL will have to cancel with Winter Classic and the All Star Game.
The fact is, is that this is a crucial juncture for the league and its players, and yet, no talks are scheduled. So unless a miracle happens, the Winter Classic (Which was set to be played in the Big House in Ann Arbor, Michigan) and the All Star Game (Set to be played in Columbus) will fall victim to this lockout.
Well done NHL and NHLPA. You represent this game so well.
