First the bad news...
NHL and NHLPA haven't scheduled another bargaining session. Good chance talks don't get going again before next week.— Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) October 4, 2012
...no urgency fellas, it's not like opening night is supposed to be next week.
And here's a little something to cheer you up from the always hilarious Bloge Salming/Down Goes Brown...
As a Rangers fan living in the San Jose area I am very disappointed. I had the Sharks opening night vs Rangers circled on my calendar for months....
Absolutely disgusting that it has come to this! Get it together already! It's getting hard to even muster up empathy for the players anymore...
