I can't figure out how the big market owners haven't seen the writing on the wall (revenue sharing, contract terms, salary %) and put together a contraction deal. They are the ones losing national TV revenue and sharing revenue with hopeless franchises.

None of us have the numbers to know what that would look like, but take 6.67% annually back from the TV deal, don't spend XX dollars sharing revenue with junk markets, amortize it over a couple decades, and I have to figure there's a buyout/contraction deal in there somewhere.

That is their best negotiating deal. 6.67% of players unemployed, or... take this offer. Would be super ballsy, but the superstar players would want it, and it would probably cause a big mess inside the union ranks.

If I was a prick, that's what I would try to do.
I wonder how that works when you own the TV network?

(NESN ownership is a 80/20 split between the Sox and Bruins)

I was in Montreal Saturday night for a Christmas party and can tell you the local fans are really fed up with this.
Habs fans are pissed off? I knew there had to be a silver lining somewhere in this mess

I've been hopeful that we would have at least a partial season... I think it's curtains.

That is their local deal, not the same as the national NBC Sports/NBC and CBC/TSN/SportsNET deals.

Ask your boy Jeremy Jacobs. In addition to owning the Bruins, the arena, the food concession at the arena ( and for 6 other NHL teams ), he is also part owner of NESN. So Nikon, we expect you to do your part and boycott the Bruins.

fWIW it appears that cooler heads may prevail. One can hope.

Not much love going for him around Boston lately, and he finally started to redeem himself these last few years. Before that he would put out a so-so team for over a decade because us Bruins fans are too hardcore for our own good and would go to every game we could even if it was simply the BC team in Bruins jerseys.

And if the team sucks a few more 9 dollar Sam Adams will help drown it out


Or if I'm down by the glass I live it up with some gin and tonics

This lockout may result in heroin use to cope with the pain. My 4 year old asked me why we haven't watched any Bruins games recently. Ever try to explain a lockout to a 4 year old? I imagine the sex talk will be easier. I almost cried when he asked about the Bruins.

Should I edit the 2012 out of the title now?

They are kicking the can down the road on the Olympics and realignment. I suspect no Olympics.
