    Just had a friend send me this. They're killing pro (albeit minor league) hockey here in Indy. Guess that's the end of my dreams of becoming team photographer someday. :-( :cry: :cry:

    Sorry to hear that. Now you are going to have to watch some boring sport like baseball or basketball.

    I always liked the Racers, because that's where we got Gretzky. My favourite trivia question is "Against what team did Gretzky score his first professional goal?" Highlight -->
    The Edmonton Oilers in the WHL, before they merged into the NHL

    We have been holding on to our Edmonton Oilers like grim death for the last few years. We might still loose them if they don't fix the CBA. We are nothing more than a farm team as it is now anyway.

    My condolences :cry:

    The CBA was exactly what I was thinking of...

    You may be missing your team at the same time we're all missing our various NHL pro teams, too! So much for watching hockey :roll:

    Rumors have been rampant around these parts that if something isn't done soon, the NHL will be VERY different, as early as next season.

    I have heard everything from no hockey next season to restructuring, to going back to only 16 teams, and various others.

    Not being in an area where hockey gets much air time, I'd like to know if anyone else has heard these, and which are more likely?

    Basically, if they players union and the owners don't come to a contractual agreement during the off-season, there will be no start to the next season. Rumors basically say that there are a lot of salary related items which so far have not been agreed to, and from what I have read, they aren't really even close to an agreement.

    This has a quick little write-up on the situation

    Get ready for a lock out. There are a lot of reports of players getting ready to play overseas if it happens, at least on a temporary basis.
