Magnitogorsk of Russia's KHL is my new favorite team I guess. Go team Malkin.
To be honest, I probably won't watch any KHL hockey, and just wait until the NHL is back.
This is hilarious and awesome and deserves more views.
As the NHL lockout is now over with a shortened season, the main question will be was it worth it for the NHL to once again alienate their fan bases. It looks so far as if it didn't really have much impact in attendence, but is this the end of lockouts or will the leagues that faced them: the NFL, NBA, and NHL be at least alright until they all expire again. It seems like MLB at least is steering clear of a lockout which would likely devastate that sport.
So, are we done with lockouts until the current contracts run out again (very likely) and then when that happens, will lockouts again be the only way to bring both owners and players together again?
The NFL CBA is ironclad for the next ten years. I think both sides of the NBA one have the option to bow out after 6 years. I think the MLB is an ironclad ten year one too.
And reportedly Billy Hunter is out as NBPA union head.
Donald Fehr is rumored to be taking over.
