It's time that the players, former and current stepped up and started there own hockey league. THE Hockey League, THL.
Think about it. The players would be able to play and pay themselfves. If they're not happy with management, then they can fire or trade themselfves. If they don't like the beer or hotdogs being sold, they can change the vendor. But most of all, no more lockouts. Would look even more stupid to lock themselves out then being locked out by greedy owners.
I'm going back to work now. Think I will steam a cricket match on my computer later tonight, with some canapes and white wine.
