NHL's Letter To Fans, Lefebvre, Tony Esposito And More...

Good Morning Addicts!

I guess it comes as no surprise that midnight came and went without the emergence of a new CBA. On the bright side, the NHL did issue a letter to the fans.

The letter assures the fans that despite the expiration of the CBA, both sides are "committed to working negotiating around the clock to reach a new CBA that is fair to the players and to the 30 NHL teams".

Doesn't that make you feel better?

One might wonder why, with their commitment to reaching a new CBA, wouldn't the two sides have met yesterday in the final hours to attempt to find a solution that would please the "Worlds greatest fans".

That would be a reasonable question if you had any faith at all in a man who is behind three lockouts in twenty years, and two in the last eight.

Habs and Hockey News

- Now back to non CBA related news. The Gazette had an article on Tuesday focusing on Sylvain Lefebvre as he prepares for his first season as the head coach of the Hamilton Bulldogs.

- Dave Stubbs spoke with Tony Esposito as part of the 40th anniversary of  the 1972 Summit Series.

- With no NHL hockey, the American Hockey League should be more interesting with the likes of Jeff Skinner, Jordan Eberle and Adam Henrique joining their teams respective AHL affiliates.

- Bruins forward Milan Lucic beat the lockout buzzer by inking a three year extension worth an average of $6 million.
