When the last lockout of the hockey players occurred, we were all told that the league was having problems and that a correction was required to the collective system. And with that, we lost a year of hockey. This morning, we hear that the NHL has locked out their players once again, once again requiring a change to the collective system.
I don’t know about you, but I am getting very tired of this. The game that I loved, frankly from the early 70s, has been gone for some time now and it pains me to watch the modern game. Anyone even thinks of touching another player with a solid body check today needs to think twice. And now this lockout again.
Personally, whether they resolve this soon or late, I resolve not to watch any more NHL games. I intend on spending more time at our local arenas watching the game how it should be played.
