The Demise of the National Hockey League

Dear Jim,

Sorry, I just broke my back after carrying the league for 25 years.

Sincerely,

Wayne Gretzky

Dear Jim,

We're going to miss the NHL, especially the neutral zone trap, which is so much better than Olympic hockey.

Sincerely,

Nobody

Dear Jim,

The right for the League to lock out players and to let owners deny payment to players the very money they signed contracts for, is an inalienable right. Thank God the law is at least partly on our side.

Sincerely,

The Extremely Wealthy

Dear Jim,

The right of a labor union to make all employee/employer contracts, no matter how freely agreed to, subject to union restrictions and federal regulations, is inalienable.

Sincerely,

Union Leader

Dear Jim,

Labor law is too complicated. Only arbitrators from the federal government can resolve these conflicts.

Sincerely,

Bureaucrats, federal judges, and high-priced lawyers

Dear Jim,

What does the government have to do with the salaries and benefits of the world's best hockey players?

Sincerely,

Common Sense

Dear Jim,

What the ..... !?

Sincerely,

Hockey fan
