It was widely publicized the National Hockey League would cancel more games before the end of the week.  Today, they lived up to what we all knew they would do.

All games through January 14th, 2013 are off the schedule.

This means the widely speculated January date of no return would hold true.  If a new Collective Bargaining Agreement is not in place by this date, and believe me it won’t, the 2012-2013 season is dead.

At this point in time, I say…  DO IT!  CANCEL THEM!

We do have hockey to watch…  the AHL, ECHL, KHL, and other leagues are playing.  At this point in time, the spotlight is on the other leagues that don’t have the headaches the NHL and NHLPA do.
