NHL cancels games scheduled through November

Friday, October 26, 2012 at 2:46pm

More scheduled professional hockey games in Nashville and around the National Hockey League have fallen victim to the league's lockout.

The NHL announced Friday that all games through Nov. 30 — now totalling more than a quarter of the season — have been cancelled.

The full statement from the league follows below:

"The National Hockey League announced today the cancellation of the 2012-13 regular-season schedule through November 30 because of the absence of a Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NHL Players' Association and the NHL.

"A total of 326 regular-season games — 26.5 percent of the season — were scheduled for Oct. 11 through Nov. 30."

No Worries. The 1%rs wont even feel it. Just sorry for the 9 to 5rs that will miss the game day revenue. I think Downtown bars and restaurants should sue the NHL and players for lost revenue. Packed my jersey away. Wont attend a game this year. My own little personal protest.

Go Dores, Titans! Go Nashville a great place to live!

Now that we have gotten November out of the way, let us hope that we can cancel the the December schedule as well. These cancellation while weighing heavily on the finances of the players and the owners are actually good for the financial health of the sport.

Getting financially weak franchises out of the league is my hope. These cancellations are a tremendous help in doing just that.
