Like every other hockey fan in North America, I sit here wondering when, or if, the NHL will return this season. If it does, there would most likely be a 40 to 50 game season at best.

In 2011-12, the NBA played a 66-game truncated season in the wake of its own lockout, beginning on Christmas Day —...
