Marthaler: An NHL CBA Open Letter

If there's another lockout, if your hardheaded negotiating strategy causes more hockey games to be cancelled, I promise you right here and now that I will ignore the NHL at least until the first TV timeout of the first game of the regular season. Oh yes, Mr. Bettman. You won't like that, will you? That first few minutes of halting, opening-game hockey - you can kiss that goodbye. We hockey fans will be ignoring the TV. You might as well give away those ads for free, right up until 7:25 p.m., when we glance at our watches and say, "Well, maybe I'll just check the score." Welcome back to SB Nation Minnesota, Mr. Marthaler. You were missed. Anyone agree with Jon? I know I do. They can do whatever they want, and they know they've got me by the seat of my pants. Le sigh.
