First off, let me say I would like to apologize if you are reading this and are sick of the lockout news. This being my first lockout, I am aware of my naiveté and (potential) gullibility, so take this with a grain of salt. I still have to remind myself that I don't like Gary Bettman and that Mike Millbury is the reincarnation of Satan on earth. That being said, I am incredibly desperate that the season be played. I've only been a hardcore fan the past two seasons and it sucks having only my third season being taken away from me. And so, if you have the guts, or even the mild interest, put your name on the line and say whether you think this is true or not. I am willing to say that this will 100% end up being true (based on gut alone) and if I'm wrong you can all make fun of me on Thursday.
