With labour negotiations making little progress, Saturday's fan's comment comes from CBCSports.ca user Nessecity, who questions whether Bill Daly actually feels badly for fans, and wonders if NHL arenas will be packed again once the lockout comes to an end.
The NHL announced on Friday the cancellation of more regular-season games up until Dec. 14 and the all-star game.

With negotiations making little progress, Saturday's fan's comment comes from CBCSports.ca user Nessecity, who questions whether Bill Daly actually feels badly for fans, and wonders if NHL arenas will be packed again once the lockout comes to an end.

"And the farce continues...

"We feel badly for NHL fans..." Really?!? Does Bill Daly think we are so stupid that we'll believe anything he says???

They will resolve this impasse eventually, when they've destroyed the game enough to figure out that the money pie they are arguing about has shrunk beyond repair. And they will apologise profusely and tell us how important we are because we're the best fans in the world (which is code for please come back and spend your money so that we can grow the money pie again). But they will not gain back the loyalty of alienated fans.

And to those fans who think that alienated fans like me are only talking the talk, look over a couple of rows to the empty seats whenever the league resumes play... that's I used to sit. See it empty? That's walking the talk, buddy..."
