NHL cancels regular-season games through Jan. 14

NHL

The National Hockey League announced Thursday the cancellation of 2012-13 regular-season games through January 14 due to the league’s labor dispute with the NHLPA.

The move will leave 625 regular-season games — 50.8 percent of the season — lost during the current lockout.

NHL Deputy commissioner Bill Daly said yesterday the point of no return for cancelling the entire 2012-13 season is in and around mid-January.

The 2004-05 season was not canceled until much later in the schedule, but the NHL reportedly won’t wait as long during this lockout.

Don't these idiots realize that, unlike the NBA and NFL lockouts, most people don't give a crap.  There has been very little media coverage as compared to the other two situations, and nobody is clamoring for an end to the lockout.
