Ah, August. When there was still a moderate amount of hope that the NHL and the players' association would avoid a work stoppage.
But now it's 18 days into a lockout, pre-season games have been cancelled, and the start of the regular season is looming without a deal on the horizon.
On Aug. 30, we asked who you supported during the labour negotiations, and the results were as such:
- 20.87 per cent (344 votes) supported the owners.
- 38.29 per cent (631 votes) supported the players.
- 40.84 per cent (673 votes) supported neither.
With all that has gone on (or, let's face it, hasn't gone on) we think some fans may have changed their opinion on who they're backing during the current labour disruption.
