Heard this gem this morning from USA Today's hocket beat writer regarding the NHL lockout: "The fans, as always, are the biggest losers."
Really? A slew of individuals employed by NHL teams lost their jobs and health insurance. A number of other classes of employees (arena workers, waitstaff and bartenders at bars and restaurants near arenas, etc.) lost a good chunk of their income. We as fans lost the ability to spend $50 per ticket to watch games and spend $7 for beer. Who really lost more?
