September 13, 2012; New York, NY, USA; NHL commissioner Gary Bettman speaks during a press conference at the Crowne Plaza Times Square. Mandatory Credit: Brad Penner-US PRESSWIREThe NHL has announced that they have cancelled a batch of regular season games due to labor disagreements with the Players' Union.

The games have been cancelled through October 24, and more cancellations are imminent if an agreement is not reached soon.

This chops about 6 games off the schedule for most teams.

The season was scheduled to begin a week from today, but obviously that's not happening.

Many NHL players have already signed contracts to play overseas, and the prospects of even a shortened season are looking bleak.

What do you think? Will the NHL and the players come to an agreement that allows us to have some semblance of a season this year? Or will they lose another entire season to the lockout?

Bettman is an idiot, the owners are idiots, players are idiots. They think they can recover from this? They are not the NFL or NBA

I as a loyal hockey fan have gone beyond mad. Mad is an understatement. This is now the 3rd time this has happened under Gettman's reign. And the ones that are hurting the most are fans. Hate to break the news but in the states. The NHL isn't as popular as the NFL this is causing more harm then expected.

I can't believe this is happening.  Now I will have to start attending the AHL games in my home town to get some hockey action and watch the college teams when there on the cable network.  This blows!!!

I THINK EVERY SINGLE TEAM SHOULD MOON BETTMAN WHEN HE ATTENDS THE GAMES, AND THEN WHEN THERE IS A SEASON, IF THERE IS ONE, BOTH TEAMS IN THE STANLEY CUP FINALS TAKES BETTMAN INTO THE BOARDS AND RAMS HIS ASS REPEATEDLY UNTIL HE IS EITHER DEAD OR BLOODY AS HELL FOR WHAT HE'S DOING TO OUR NHL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
