PLAYERS: Gary Bettman
As I reported last night on CSNPhilly.com, the Lockout Games inched along with the subtle news that NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman will meet with the Board of Governors on Sept. 13. At that time, he will update the guvs on the CBA and ask for a vote of confidence - real vote, too - on backing him in the lockout if no agreement by Sept. 15. There are so many issues up in the air right now, I...

Bettman Meets With The Board Of Governors On September 13th

from Tim Panaccio of CSN Philly,  On Sept. 13, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman will address the league’s Board of Governors in New York City. According to governors, who spoke anonymously with CSNPhilly.com, Bettman will outline where both sides are in the collective bargaining process. He will then ask them – via a vote – whether they are supportive of his...

Gary Bettman is like the Monty Hall of inept pro sport commissioners

With the Sept. 15 date ominously looming and NHL commissioner Gary Bettman insisting that if a new collective bargaining agreement isn’t reached by that date that he will have no choice but to lock out players, time is running perilously short for the league and the NHLPA to hammer out a deal and avoid the [...]

GARTH: Bettman Doesn't Need Permission To Lockout

The September 13 NHL board of governors meeting in New York City isn’t going to be a session where a vote is taken to determine whether the NHL should and will padlock the doors to the training camp doors, and thus launch the third work stoppage of the Gary Bettman administration. Daly says that Bettman already has the approval of the owners to lockout the players if a new agreement...

Gary Bettman Treating Fans as Doormats

In the past, I've discussed the disservices commissioner Gary Bettman provides for the National Hockey League. In the past, I've also discussed how it is the fans who take the largest beating when a season lockout occurs. Well, now just over a week away from the 2012-13 campaign being delayed, which could later become a full-on cancellation, we are going to mesh the two...

NHL Lockout Pretty Much Guaranteed?

We are now 11 days until an official NHL Lockout.  After the jump, the bad news...  I wish I could write this long, elaborate post on why the NHL won't have a lockout but I can't. It seems that no matter how good (or bad) talks go, Gary Bettman and the NHL owners are pushing for this lockout. Why? No ******* idea. Late Friday afternoon, while I was dick deep in Locust...

NHL Lockout Deadline Looms as Negotiations Cease Between Players and League

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman has stated unequivocally that the NHL will lock out the players if there is no agreement reached between the sides by September 15th. By all accounts, the two sides are very far apart on several core issues, most notably the percentage of league revenue to be allotted to player salaries. NHLPA head Donald Fehr said on Friday that labor talks were ...

Lockout or not, Wings prepare for hockey

TROY, Mich. -- The Detroit Red Wings aren't locked out yet and still hold hope there will be an agreement before that happens. The current collective bargaining agreement between owners and players is set to expire Sept. 15 and commissioner Gary Bettman has already said the players will be locked out if there's no deal by that day. Some of the Red Wings are already in town...

Don't be a ******* idiot, you're not going to stop the NHL lockout with a youtube video

  There are great causes. And there are lame, ill-fated, and ******* stupid ones. Today's lame cause is this piss poor video about stopping the NHL lockout. Aww that's so cute. And by cute we mean irrationally stupid.  Things that won't happen EVER happen:   Fan stopping an NHL lockout.   And that's okay. Everyone has...

Ron MacLean Says “There Won’t Be A Lockout”

from Ron MacLean of CBC,  There won't be a lockout. Seven years ago, the owners held a powerful upper hand. And more important, the issues were different. Gary Bettman wisely hired Arthur Levitt, the former Chairman of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), to produce an audit showing the NHL lost $232 million US in 2003-04. That gave Bettman...

Hump day in the No Hockey League…

Good morning everyone – its 31 days until UND the Fighting Sioux plays the Manitoba Bison in the first exhibition game of the season. To quote Dean Millard of the Pipeline Show, it’s hard to not refer to UND hockey as the Fighting Sioux. But I digress. Jess Myers has the latest - INCH A-Z: and UND’s Brendan O’Donnell makes the cut… Also, last week Jess Myers revealed...

Maybe There Won't Be a Lockout

Ron MacLean at CBC Sports has proclaimed "There won't be a lockout."MacLean says the difference between this year's CBA negotiations compared to 2004-05 is that back then Gary Bettman had no choice but to shut down after the NHL lost $232 million the year before, while now all he wants to do is what both the NFL and NBA did and trim the players' percentage of...

Grindin' Gears: You Don't Matter In The NHL Lockout Edition

When it comes to an NHL lockout, you know who doesn't matter? You.  In the grand scheme of things, no one gives a **** about you. The NHL, Gary Bettman and their owners don't give a **** about you. Donald Fehr doesn't give a ****  about you and your precious players don't give a **** about you.  If they did, why would they be at the negotiation table ********...

Talking CBA

SCOTT BURNSIDE: ... I recall a conversation you and I had just before you went off the grid for the summer, when I suggested the two sides would get a deal done and we wouldn’t miss anything, including training camp. You scoffed at me (not the first time nor will it be the last) and here you are, vindicated. Why didn’t you expect things to get rolling before the Sept. 15...
