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.
