As we’ve previously discussed, the current NHL penis-measuring contest is slated for a big decision on Saturday. If the NHL owners and Players Association can’t come to an agreement by then, the NHL lockout will be a reality and it’s all going to get a whole lot uglier, because neither side learned anything from the NBA and NFL lockouts of 2011, except maybe that if you cancel a third of the season, your ratings will still be great. And if that’s what the NHL owners and executives are hoping for, well, good f*cking luck.
Last night, though, there was a glimmer of hope in this otherwise bleak offseason, as David Canter Tweeted that the owners and NHLPA had come to a surprise agreement and that the season was saved. It should be noted that Canter is a football agent, so what the hell does he know? Well, he knows what Pierre McGuire tells him.
