How we got here, as retold in the spirit of this NHL lockout. But first, a disclaimer of interest: We are thinking of going to Europe to get away from all this labour madness. We’ll go as soon as Sidney Crosby does.
Now to business and a statement from the NHL:
“We believe we have made a fair offer and that the season can be saved if the players are willing to negotiate.”
The NHL Players’ Association responds with a counter-statement:
“We believe the owners are jerks.”
“No we’re not.”
“Yes you are.”
News flash: talks break off, no further discussions planned.
