With the realistic possibility that the NHL will endure a second lockout in the past decade, it seems believable that this Lockout talk is really just a ploy to give some attention to the NHL. Seriously, when is the last time you ever talked about the NHL outside of the playoffs? Never. Instead of forcing ESPN to talk about the Lockout, maybe Commissioner Gary Bettman should try to falsify a kidnapping again. It didn’t work out too well when he tried to that last time though.
