  • Some NHL franchises would be better off with a...

    Barring a breakthrough in stalled negotiations for a new collective bargaining agreement, a work stoppage for the 2004-05 campaign would provide at least some teams financial relief, an ESPN.com survey of NHL clubs revealed. Officials with nine of 15 teams contacted by ESPN.com said the NHL's current economic structure is so flawed that their clubs would have a better chance to make ends meet if their players do not take the ice next season.
    The rest.

    Doesn't surprise me...

    The NHL can talk publicly long and hard aboot not contracting and it will be true: they'll just have long enough work stoppage to have some franchises cease operations due to bankruptcy, thus negating the mess of 'contraction'....

        Drunk steve,

        How was Nashville? I heard the talking heads on ESPN say that there was a magic atmostphere in Nashville on Saturday. Was that because the place was St. Louis south?

          For the most part, yeah. The Blues fans outnumbered the Predators fans in the streets before and after the game... the Arena itself was obviously about 80% Predators fans, but there were TONS of Bluenotes walking around.

          It's always fun to go into another building. This season I've seen games at the Joe Louis Arena, United Center, and the Gaylord Enterntainment Center -- unfortunately, I've got a 1-3 record right now...

          Here's a good picture of the post-game Blues lovefest outside the building:
