Remember when there was no hockey for the first four months of the season?
When it comes to acceptance of gay players, the NHL is already way ahead of the NBA.
Now that the streak is over, it’s time for the Chicago Blackhawks to get on with the business of winning another Stanley Cup.
You don’t have to be the head of the Catholic Church to resign. Here’s a list of 10 resignations that should happen.
The Blackhawks are going to be excellent entertainment most nights for fans who will forget their lockout-induced anger at hockey.
Hockey is back, and it took nearly four months and one long night to get the game back on the ice.
So, yeah, our fearless leaders all suck. And while what Tagliabue did gives us a sliver of hope that they can’t be megalomaniacs in their fields all the time, ultimately fans have to sit back and shake their heads.
The tenor turned a bit after a second straight marathon day of NHL labor talks. Gone was some of the lightheartedness and rare optimism expressed about 24 hours earlier.
The NHL, the players’ association and now even federal mediators agree on one thing: the bickering sides are nowhere near a deal that would put hockey back on the ice.
Gary Bettman is not the commissioner of the NHL.
NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman says it looks like a full-82 game schedule “is not going to be a reality,” as the lockout nears its seventh week.
The NHL has made a new offer to the players’ association that proposes a 50-50 split of hockey-related revenue and a full 82-game season starting Nov. 2.
The NHL and the players’ association resumed meetings Thursday to try to end the monthlong lockout.
Gary Bettman may not look like it, but he’s a bully.
The clock struck midnight, and the NHL turned into another sports league closed for business.
NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said a “wide gap” remains in labor talks between the league and the NHL Players’ Association in issuing his first public comments on Wednesday, a day after the union presented its offer.
A published report says the Phoenix Coyotes’ Raffi Torres could see his suspension reduced, more than two months after he delivered a hit on the Blackhawks’ Marian Hossa that left the winger out for the rest of the teams’ playoff series.
NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman considers those complaints from various teams about their players receiving suspensions during the postseason as nothing more than “gamesmanship.”
The inconsistencies have left even non-hockey fans confused, but even worse, it has left the players on the ice confused.
Gabriel Bourque scored two goals in his postseason debut, and the Nashville Predators held onto home-ice advantage by beating Detroit Red Wings 3-2 on Wednesday night to open their Western Conference playoff series.
