IMG00012BREAKING NEWS from the NHL: After 113 long days, the lockout is now… over!


Join Frs. Andrew, Darryl, Travis, and Geoffrey in the discussion!


Topics we discussed:



  • The NHL season will likely be 48 games long, and teams will only play within their conference.

  • We talk about the Canadian NHL teams. We have a bit of a battle of Alberta going on: Fr. Andrew is a fan of the Oilers, while Frs. Travis, Geoff, and Darryl cheer for the Flames. (Go Flames!)

  • Don Fehr and Gary Bettman: Will they be around when the new CBA runs its course?

  • NHL and its fans: Canadian fans will probably come back eventually. TV deals in the USA may be a challenge with all these labour disruptions.

  • A possible olive branch to the fans is being thrown around: Make the NHL Centre Ice Package free this season for watching all the games.

  • Toronto has already lost a game (Winter Classic) and has been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. ;-)

  • Shout out to @Armdog (Colby Armstrong)

  • Montreal Canadiens – shout out to the many fans. Hopefully we don’t get too much hate mail from all of them…

  • The successes (or otherwise) of athletes named Todd

  • Football: The Vikings and the college bowl games

  • Alabama hung on for the win over Notre Dame

  • R.A. Dickey was introduced as a new pitcher for the Toronto Blue Jays.
