Sorry I haven’t been posting as much as usual lately.
Between the lack of, you know, hockey or hockey-related news, and the Yankees and their magical run (cough, cough), and the other parts of my “other job” it’s been hard for me to find time or ideas.
But now that the Yankees have finished their clutch hitting and Robinson Cano is done hustling to first …
Well, I’m hoping to spend more time here. I still have a couple of guest blogs in the can, so I’ll unleash those in the next few days.
And I suspect we will have hockey, again, by Thanksgiving, and once we do, I will be given more time to do this.
First — based on my experience with previous strikes/lockouts in sports — I expect there will be a “setback” in negotiations again, and there will be a day when it looks darkest, as if the season is absolutely doomed. All that is is both sides trying to greed a little extra out of the deal both sides know is more or less inevitable.
So be prepared to have it appear that there will be no hockey in 2012-13 … only to miraculously have the sides come together and save some semblance of a season — 72 or 68 or 64 games or whatever. It’s going to happen. Trust me.
Predictable rich idiots.
