Before Cancelling The Winter Classic, Sit Down And Talk

from Damian Cox of The Spin,

But after pouring millions down the sinkhole that is the Phoenix Coyotes for four years, why not make a small investment in the game and NOT cancel the Winter Classic?

At least, not just yet.

Don't cancel it, and in so doing, make it an olive branch held out to the players. Don't cancel the Winter Classic and simultaneously offer to sit down with the players for serious bargaining ASAP, something that hasn't happened at all yet.

The league wants to negotiate off its last proposal. Well, the Fehr Bros. said this week that they're willing to talk about that. So talk.

This is an easy one for the NHL, to tell hockey fans that it treasures this particular event (I'm no fan, but folks do seem to like it) and that it's willing to take a financial hit to extend the deadline for cancellation to, say, Nov. 16th.
