If you are reading this post you have survived 2012 Black Friday Door-busters!! Hopefully you secured all your deals and now that the NHL players are about to miss their fourth paycheck there was a sight not seen since 2004 last night.

NHL players were in the mad rush for deals on the Friday to save all the money they have left since not making a cent during the lockout.  I wonder as they stood in line to get the best gift if they wished they were collecting paychecks instead of fighting over percentages.

Maybe the long lines with a lighter wallet with the Holidays dead ahead could lead the players to rethink their hard stance on their percentages for the new CBA! Well let’s at least keep our fingers crossed that one of the Hawks were stuck in a Kohl’s line at midnight last night!
