So far, all NHL games through November and the Winter Classic are cancelled. A lot of folks thought this would not be possible, after losing a full season in 2004-2005. But they are doing it again. At the very least, we're looking at an abbreviated schedule and a ton of bad will. At most, we're looking at another cancelled season and who knows what beyond that.
So who is to blame for this mess? A lot of discussion has been bandied about lately, but I thought it would be interesting to catch people's general perception via this very scientific poll.
Who is to blame for the current NHL lockout and cancelled games to date (please choose the closest approximation to your answer)?
