Found September 16, 2012 on NY Rangers Blog:
This morning, it was the League offering their own statement on their stance of the lockout that commenced at 12:01 a.m. this morning.Now, the NHLPA has released a video that features players like David Backes, Jonathan Toews and Sidney Crosby talking about how this is an "Owners lockout" and the sacrifice they've made and are willing to make. Enough of the PR propaganda. Start working towards getting the season to start on time. Either side isn't getting any sympathy from me nor should they from anyone else.

NHL stars record video about lockout for fans

I hate to say this, but today kind of feels like a funeral. It's also kind of a case Deja Vu all-over again, we have seen this act before - and we didn't really like it very much. Here is the video from the NHLPA players and former Fighting Sioux forward Jonathan Toews is in the video. Related articles How Fans Can End the NHL Lockout (insidehockey.com) Unable to Reach...

NHL lockout is happening whether the fans like it or not

It's nice to be loved, isn't it? All of a sudden, hockey fans are the center of PR messages from the league and spiffy videos from the NHLPA (featuring David Backes!) explaining why people won't be going to any pre-season games this month, or NHL hockey games in general for quite some time. [youtube]RCW0VsfR9FM[/youtube] I feel loved now, don't you?

St. Louis Blues' website is a player-free zone

Let's face it: the lockout's only a few days old, and already it sucks. What more reminder can we need?
