nhl- Hockey in Trouble

via Slam, Ambivalence toward the NHL should be expected from those south of the border.
However, it should be cause for alarm to the owners and players when that's the prevailing feeling in the Great White North.
As of yesterday evening, more than half the respondents to a Slam Sports poll said they don't care anymore if the NHL and the NHLPA agree to a new collective bargaining agreement this summer.
Only one-third said they believe the childish fight over billions will come to a conclusion in the next couple of months.
The players may believe the news ESPN won't pick up the option is a ploy either by the network or the league but stats like that should provide a real wake-up call.
