Is There a Chance

from the ottawa sun, It remains to be seen if there's enough common ground or time or will to get a deal done.
But there's still a chance.
I chuckle when people say the NHL should have called off this season already so everybody "can get on with their lives." If this season gets gassed, it will only mean more uncertainty, more wondering, more discomfort for all concerned.
The worries of an arena worker or a sports bar staffer who use their wages for their kids' education or a well-deserved vacation will shift from this year to next. Will that money be there next year? Will this have to be a summer of even more belt tightening?
Those who say, "Call off this season, already," should think twice.
