So apparently the NHL brought in meditators to the meetings.

And guess what happened? No progress was made.

I was reading the last issue of The Hockey News where they wrote there is talk about expanding the NHL by granting 2 new franchises once the labor dispute is settled. Granted, these would both be in Canada (Quebec City and Ontario). Sounds like they may want 32 clubs to set even divisions.

The local radio and TV here in Philly sound like a deal will be made. Trying not to get my hopes up too much. I'm ready for hockey! (You would be too if you were an Eagles fan)

It has been a depressing sports season with the Flyers in a lockout and the Eagles being horrible

I can see two more Canadian teams, put one in Quebec City and the other in Hamilton possibly.

I'm still amazed, and actually pleased, regarding the fair amount of Bruins caps or t-shirts I still see here near Boston, whether the gym or grocery store or mall. A girl was wearing a Tim Thomas tee at the mall last week; a minute or so later, a teen girl was wearing a Tyler Seguin jersey. It's a lot more Bruins stuff vs. years ago, for sure. Even the AAA guy yesterdays drove up in a Bruins hat.

I'm sure around NYC, one would hardly see a hockey item, especially with the Nets now so hip and happening.

They sell out every game and I would wager it depends on where you look. Manhattan is full of suits and transplants. Aside from Yankee caps, I never saw much sports swag.

I see Coyotes swag nearly every day here in Phoenix and they have one of the smallest fan bases in the league.

The game also needs owners and players with brains. Collectively, they have probably crippled the NHL at the worst possible time.
Bettman stinks because he is an idiot, wherever he is from ! !!

Problem Quebec has is the potential owners of the team want the tax payers to pay for everything then they'll just sit back and collect the profits any future team would generate.
The reason they left Quebec in the first place was because the owners had a hissy fit because tax payers wouldnt fund the cost of a new arena...
Quebec? they had their chance and blew it..

Sad that many bartenders and waitresses in places around the arenas are getting laid off and trying to find new jobs to supplement their income. Ran into two the other night who were interviewing for new jobs as they are finding it hard to make the rent without the tips that hockey provides. Boo Bettman.
