- Comment on And it’s official: NHL lockout begins (2012-09-18 20:24:23)
NHL hockey does not belong to the fans, it does not belong to the players, it belongs to the owners. They chose Bettman as their negotiator/spokesperson, they are the ones who locked the arenas and have shut down the game. NHL hockey is their game, it is as simple as that. Get over your otherwise romantic notions about NHL hockey and get on with life.

Shame on the Canadiens ownership for their lack of leadership in resolving this issue. They continue to support Bettman as he failed to negotiate fairly and implemented a lock-out that Bettman manufactured.

Very proud of this team, they fought hard and deserved a better fate. No matter, the hockey season is over. This team missed Markov and Gorges, Hamerlik and Spacek were stellar during last year's playoffs, they were ordinary this year, as was Gill. A few bright young players and hopefully more in Hamilton, there will be some retooling to do.

Great season guys, thanks!

G you must be watching a different series, Price has outperformed Thomas hands down. This series should end Wednesday, anything less would be a travesty. The Habs have lost two tough games in OT, that's unfortunate and arguably some bad luck. These things tend to even out, hopefully sooner rather than later.

Really tough loss, Price played his heart out. As did some others. I think this year's playoff team is sorely missing Gorges, Gill and Spacek are not having playoffs like last year. This team lacks grit up front, this is where they miss Lapierre. All that said, still feel the Habs have been mostly outplaying the Bruins, they are up against a very lucky goalie...but that's the playoffs.

Classy move by Montreal fans to give Koivu a standing O. Nice hit by Lapierre! Okay, enough of the ex-Hans...Go Habs Go!

Good for Max, I think he will turn out to be another player whose potential was not realized as a Hab. He is a better player than the way he was being utilized.

Nice to hear that O'Byrne is doing well with the Avalanche. It sounds like he is playing the way he did in Hamilton, hard hitting stay at home D.

Ryan is a class guy. I hope he gets back to playing the kind of game he played in Hamilton, where he impressed as a blueliner. I saw him play in games where he was a dominant, physical presence. Best of luck O'B.
