NHL Lockout: Can the League Recover from Yet Another Work Stoppage?

The NHL has locked out its players after the collective bargaining agreement set to expire Saturday evening at 11:59 p.m. ET was allowed to pass without another being agreed upon, according to Katie Strang of ESPN.

With negotiations for a new CBA at a standstill, the NHL Players Association and NHL have remained unwilling to bend on their requests and demands, leaving the fans of the sport out in the cold.

After the league lost much of the momentum it had carried through the '80s and into the '90s with the 1994-1995 partially lost season, the league fell into the exact same trap 10 years later and lost the entire season in 2004-2005. The league has yet to fully recover.

Here we are almost 10 years later and facing the same problems once again; this time, though, there may be no chance for recovery.
