BREAKING 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. ;-)

Montreal Canadiens - shout out to the many fans. Hopefully we don't get too much hate mail from all of them...
