  To be honest I had not noticed either
St. Paul Pioneer Press | 01/26/2005 | So-called hockey lockout makes lemmings look savvy
And that's here, in the State of Hockey. I can't even begin to imagine the lack of impact the so-called lockout is having in a place like Tampa Bay, current residence of the Stanley Cup — or in Nashville, Phoenix, Raleigh-Durham, Atlanta and Columbus. I believe I read in a Zogby Poll that 56 percent of Americans were unaware that no NHL hockey is being played.

That's why I keep calling it a so-called lockout. Lockout is a conventional labor term. This has been more like a suicide pact. How owners and players could engage in such a reckless flirtation with disappearing altogether is beyond me. I would like to think there are bright minds behind the scenes who have a method to their madness, but I can offer no evidence of that.
