Too Few Hockey Notes On A Sunday In December

Grand Rapids Griffins have the right idea about ending the lockout

Gary Bettman's recently proposed that the members of the NHLPA and the owners meet without the commissioner and the head of the NHLPA, Donald Fehr.

Mike Augello: What Is Fair Value For Luongo?

It’s a pleasant change to discuss a validity of a trade rumor rather than the makeup of the player’s group or the six packs of owners meeting in New York tomorrow afternoon.

Season Still In Jeopardy

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post, A sense of what had been described by one source as “cautious optimism” during the midpoint of yesterday’s lengthy NHL owners-players meeting was markedly tempered when the session concluded around midnight.
