Rather than negotiate the NHL and the NHLPA has decided to take a break. Super idea! No, really genius! I mean after all, you did almost work for a whole 4 days straight. You guys must be tired. So by all means, take some time off, recharge your batteries and when you feel good and rested come back and give it another try.
Don't worry. It's not as though there's anything pressing that needs your attention. Enjoy your vacation assholes.
