NHL cancels games through January 14

NEW YORK – The National Hockey League announced today the cancellation of the 2012-13 regular-season schedule through January 14.  The cancellations are necessary due to the absence of a new Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NHL Players’ Association and the NHL. A total of 625 regular-season games – 50.8 percent of the season – were scheduled for October 11 through January 14.
 
The tersely worded statement was clear in its message.   Negotiations are going nowhere and question remains, who will stand up and make the difficult decision.
 
Money is lost on all sides and those whose livelihoods depend on the games are losing mightily.  
 
Who cares enough for those people?
