OK so maybe there won’t be any NHL hockey while the squillionaire owners and millionaire players figure out how to divide the extra large banana cream pie that is NHL revenue (ho hum). Let’s look at the bright side. For Leafs fans, if there are no games, the team can’t lose, and that has to be a good thing. And, it will save Leaf fans from the usual depressing cycle that goes from hope – this year we’re going to have a contender – to hope shattered, a third of the way through the season.
Besides, it seems obvious, at least to my little brain, the season is way too long anyway. Shave off 20 or 30 games at the front end and it should be just about right.
