NHL Lockout: The Time Has Come to Cancel the Season

The NHL lockout has lasted long enough; it's time to cancel the rest of the season and put those next months towards talks about a new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

It's not an easy answer for anyone to hear, but as of right now, it's the right one.

The NHL and NHLPA have been dragging negotiations on ever since the lockout started in September. Both sides have deliberately stalled on meetings and both are still far apart on an agreement for revenue sharing.

The last meeting for the two sides was on Monday, where NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr said very little was accomplished (via Ira Podell, The Huffington Post):

We talked about various things. No new proposals were made, they were not expected to be made. We had hoped to engage them in a discussion about the player contracting issues that are so important to the players. At least tonight they were unwilling to do that.

Every time the two sides meet, it leads to another set of questions. It also seems that both sides are becoming increasingly bitter towards one another.

It's time to stop; too much time has been wasted already.
