PLAYERS: Gary BettmanBill Daly
Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object? The National Hockey League is finally providing an answer to this classic paradox. The answer, it appears, is nothing. CBA negotiations have now reached the third-week of October, and more hazardously, have inched closer to Gary Bettman and Bill Daly's October 25th deadline. Ownership t...

When Will Gary Bettman Retire?

from Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News,  How much do NHL owners appreciate the job Bettman has done? Look no further than his executive board-approved salary, which more than doubled from the last lockout in 2004 to a reported $7.98 million in the fiscal year 2011. Ed Snider has to love Bettman. According to Forbes Magazine, the Flyers spent $73 million in...

Shortened NHL Regular Season Is Serious Possibility As Gary Bettman Weighs In (Video)

The NHL owners and players have until Thursday to strike a deal that would bring about a full 82-game regular season. As both sides are not scheduled to meet this week, the possibility of a shortened season is looking more and more like a reality. The NHLPA reached out to the owners on Tuesday in hopes of meeting on Wednesday, but the league denied the invitation...

Bettman: Full NHL season 'not a reality'

NEW YORK -- NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman says it looks like a full-82 game schedule "is not going to be a reality," as the lockout nears its seventh week. Speaking at a press conference Wednesday announcing the New York Islanders' move from Nassau Coliseum to Brooklyn's Barclays Center in 2015, Bettman seemed resigned to looking at a shortened season with the...

Another Mistake By The NHL?

from Katie Strang of ESPN, Following a disheartening negotiating session where the NHL roundly dismissed all three of the union’s proposals in Toronto last Thursday, players walked away with a grim outlook on CBA talks and a bitter aftertaste.  In rejecting the union’s array of offers within a matter of minutes, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman unintentionally galvanized...

Pinocchio would be embarrassed

(courtesy SC.EDU) Funny I seem to recall that Gary Bettman back in April had ruled the Barclay Center out as a future home for the New York Islanders. Why the NHL Commissioner said at the time that he did not believe that the Islander fans would follow the team from Uniondale to Brooklyn. Never mind that the Barclay Center is served by 11 different NYC subway lines, the LIRR...

NHL cancels games through November

NEW YORK (AP) -- The NHL lockout has forced the cancellation of all games through the end of November. One day after a league-imposed deadline passed for a deal with the players' association that would allow for a full season, the NHL announced Friday that 326 regular-season games were lost. That comes out to 26.5 percent of the schedule, from Oct. 11 through Nov. 30. "...

Vote: When Do You Believe the 2012-13 NHL Season Will Start?

It could well be a long, long winter for hockey fans. In the back-and-forth between the NHL and the Players' Association, neither side seems willing to budge, and at this point they can't even seem to agree whether or not to meet -- and when they do, the big issues have a way of going on the backburner. Earlier Friday a report emerged that the NHL and commissioner Gary Bettman...

How A Deal Gets Done

from Dan Oldfield at CBC, So it's hard to see any compelling reason for this to continue. Other than stubbornness. That will be overcome, but the question is when. Maybe this week? Maybe next? Or in a month? After that, the deal should come together fairly quickly — in a matter of days. I see it happening like this: Day 1 Steve Fehr and Bill Daly come...

Michael Stuart: The Lockout and the Lightning

“My wife tells my kids if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it.” Those were the words of one Martin St. Louis directed towards NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman. It’s not hard to see that many of the National Hockey League Players’ Association’s 750-plus members are very upset with the current state of things. On the one hand, it’s...

I Wonder…

... Why Day 39 of the lockout feels like day 139? ... If those involved in the negotiations are losing sleep on a nightly basis like I am? ... If there is an NHL owner out there without enough guts to speak publicly on the lockout?  The owners certainly did not get to where they are now by not speaking their mind, yet as of tonight they all look like sheep in a herd. ... When...
