To Hell with the NHL

Once again, another To Hell with the NHL post.  These are going to be coming for a while.

Why does the NHL need to die?  Because one of the teams complaining that they can't stay above water due to the last collective bargaining agreement is the Minnesota Wild.  The same team that signed Zach Parise and Ryan Suter to two of the biggest contracts ever.

The NHL needs to die because the board of governors member who called for the confidence vote backing the commissioner's plan to lock out the players over a proposal that would limit the length of all contracts to five years or less, Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs, signed Tyler Seguin to a six year deal last week.  Oh, and that vote was unanimous in favor of Bettman and his lock out.

These people are clearly too stupid to stay in business.  The league made 3.3 billion dollars last year, and today they are in a lock out. 

I am hoping that some day soon the Russian Kontinental Hockey League will set up an English language steam for their games.  That league has never had a lock out.  Maybe that league actually gives a shit about their fan base.
