At least we can still get excited about this guy

Due to the lack of a CBA after yesterday, the NHL has cancelled all games through November first. I believe I saw on Twitter that this amounts to 135 games around the league.

The Wild sent the following email to ticket holders to let them know how they would be affected:

The National Hockey League announced today the cancellation of the 2012-13 regular-season schedule through November 1, which includes Wild home games scheduled for Saturday Oct. 27, Monday Oct. 29 and Thursday Nov. 1.

The cancellation was necessary because of the absence of a Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NHL Players’ Association and the NHL.

Welp. That's that. I know they want us to believe a deal could still get done this week and we could still ave a season by November 2nd, but I'm just not feeling it. Anyone else?

So with more cancellations and a season continuing to remain in jeopardy, feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.
