A grand total of 526 games have been officially blacked out, which is 43% of the season, along with the All-Star weekend and Winter Classic.
And to top off the bad news, at this point, no chance to bargain with the NHLPA has been scheduled and two more paychecks have been eliminated!!
Unfortunately, while the players recently revisited and agreed to the proposal for a 50-50 split of revenue, which entitled them to $300 million, the commissioners then pulled the offer because the athletes tried to talk about other problems.
That's all bad!!!
Looks like hockey fans are just gonna have to suck it up this season because it seems like this issue is going nowhere fast!
