Lockout Alternatives: College Hockey

By October 26, 2012

Follow me on:

The Minnesota Gophers celebrate their 2011 NCAA Women's Hockey Championship.

Maybe they're enjoying the time off.

How else to explain the paltry efforts to end the NHL lockout, and the lack of urgency shown by both sides?

Collective bargaining agreements are usually achieved through collective bargaining. No surprise there.

But we've seen little bargaining between the NHL and the Players' Association.

All they've done is present elaborate proposals to each other, reject those proposals, and walk away in frustration.

While the dreary gamesmanship continues, fans must seek their hockey fix elsewhere.

This week we present a guide to college hockey as played in the U.S. and Canada.

I’d like to watch college hockey
but the Beothuks/SeaHawks haven’t played hockey since Randy Pearcey
used up his eligibility.
When I win my 50 million this coming friday we will rectify
that problem.
we will go on a whirlwind book tour/hockey recruiting trip that will
take to all locales not being ravaged by wind and rain.
we’ll start with Scott Gomez.
