I will be at the home opener because I cannot live without hockey. I spent all day yesterday playing NHL 2K5 on the Xbox. And, although I have forsaken the art of alcohol consumption, I will be more than happy to buy you a beer.

I dont watch Hockey at all (HATE ME NOW), but I found this semi-interesting article about a lot of the NHL's locked-out players signing contracts (most with "Let me go back to the NHL when the lock-out is over" clauses) with teams in Europe. Enjoy!

Sure, why not go to Europe? You can make a few bucks on a quasi-vacation and stay in as close to game shape as possible, which is important given that there will likely be only a minimal training camp (if any) when a deal gets done.

For the Euro clubs, the only way to bring the stars over is to let them leave when the NHL reopens, so why not? It's like the Astros giving Roger Clemens his 'road trips optional' clause, it's a necessity to bring in a big name. Bringing these guys in is a big deal, especially to a team like Davos. When was the last time Switzerland saw NHL all stars? Adding Thornton and Nash is huge for them, even if it is only temporary.

Remember, kids: with no NHL action to speak of, give both the players and owners the finger...and take your hockey dollars to somewhere where they're appreciated.

Go watch your local NCAA D-1 (Go Badgers!) or other college team (Go St. Norbert Green Knights!). Or check out a bunch of young kids trying for Big Ten scholarships by playing in the USHL. (Go Green Bay Gamblers!)

There's good hockey out there.

Star wipe, and...we're out.

Flames fans were saying at the end of last year "Well, at least the Roughnecks won". The Roughnecks are our NLL Lacrosse team that actually won the freakin' championship last year. And now they, like the Flames, are not going to play this year.

Have a little faith-there was another proposal last night from the NLLPA, and there's some optimism that they will reach a settlement before the midnight deadline.

TSN to offer their own lockout solution on television and website this Monday (

This could be good or not so good. Pierre McGuire is one of the hosts, so there's one knock against it. Then again, Bob McKenzie is another, so that's a big plus for it.

The TSN proposal had much less to it than Brian Burke's proposal that CBC released during the finale of the World Cup of Hockey. TSN's proposal includes a very soft luxury tax system in place of a hard cap, which should be enough to dismiss their plan entirely since, if the owners were willing to take that, we wouldn't be having this discussion at all.

I saw McKenzie on discussing this again last night, saying that both the NHLPA and NHL contacted TSN saying that the ideas were preposterous.

McKenzies conclusion was that since both sides hated it, it mush make sense...

The Canucks have signed Magnus Arvedson to a one year/$1.5 M contract. An excellent signing for the 'Nucks, IMO. The team has never had a problem scoring goals but has been weak on team defence, especially from the forwards.
