To the shock of no one, The NHL has cancelled the rest of the NHL games scheduled through December 30, 2012.  There were 536 games scheduled between October 11 and December 30th.  This represents over 40 percent of all the games scheduled in the 2012-2013 season.

What a shame that such a great game is being wasted in board rooms instead of being played in our favorite hockey arenas

What we have lost so far with Lockdown 2012-

-All pre-season games

-All regular season games through December 30 (526 in total)

– Winter Classic

-All-Star game in Columbus

The P.R. game needs to end and the compromising needs to start! This season is in full on life support with little time left.
