To the most ardent fans, this year has been hell. There are plenty of idle hockey rinks throughout the NHL. With season ticket holders, this has not been nice. They want to see their favorite players roughhousing on the ice. The team owners have been staging a lockout. Will there be hockey games this year? There is increasing doubt. In the National Hockey League, nothing is coming up roses. No players have been losing teeth or getting broken noses. Nobody is slap shooting that hard rubber hockey puck. We want to see the games played, but we are out of luck. We are stuck with watching basketball games around here. Perhaps both sides will come to terms and play hockey next year.
