The NHL and NHLPA will talk numbers today, but it wont be in the way that you would think.

The Globe and Mails Dave Shoalts says the hockey cattle comments are giving NHL commissioner Gary Bettman exactly the kind of diversion he was looking for. Well, maybe not exactly.

Pro Hockey Talk has more on the cattle fallout with Marty Havlat taking umbrage at the notion that the players arent human beings.

Unity is a key for the locked out players and will perhaps decide how long the lockout lasts, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

A good piece in the Los Angeles Times about the names engraved on the Stanley Cup, and those that do the engraving.

Bill Meltzer has a good look at whats happening with NHL players over the last few weeks, and the latest on the mass exodus to Europe.

A handy, dandy guide on How to Weather the NHL Lockout and what to do until hockey comes back.

For something completely different: a piece on the guys running the new morning show over at 1510 NBC Sports Radio, and the names should be pretty familiar to longtime Boston sports radio listeners.
