Thoughts On A Tuesday Morning

from Elliotte Friedman of CBC,

- I was thinking about the kinds of impactful things that the NHL and NHLPA are going to have to do for the fans. Fridge magnets and pocket schedules won't be enough. Something that means a little more would be offering Centre Ice for free the rest of the season (No blackouts, either). Sign up and get a free code. Yes, it hurts hockey-related revenue, but revenue is damaged this year anyway. Got do to something tangible.

- Has anyone seen Bettman and Daly angrier than they were last Thursday? Only example anyone would admit: "When Jerry Moyes put Phoenix in bankruptcy court."

- The funniest thing about the board of governors meeting was the interaction with pedestrians outside the buidling. With all the media and cameras there, people were stopping, curious to find out who we were waiting for. Hoping for Brangelina, we told them "The NHL's owners." You should have seen the looks of pure disappointment on their faces. Sorry, guys, none of you is getting an "Us Weekly" cover anytime soon.

- I thought Brad Richards of the New York Rangers had a good quote about the lockout. He compared it to a seven-game series where teams alternate victories until the end.
