Hockey agent Allan Walsh wasnt always the guy dominating the hockey world with his twitter account. This is an interesting background piece on a guy thats one of the loudest voices during the current NHL lockout.

Good buddy Joe Yerdon from Pro Hockey Talk writes that Sidney Crosby isnt feeling very optimistic about the NHL labor progress. You didnt expect Sid the Kid to be flowing with optimism, right?

Dougie Hamilton and Ryan Strome talk about playing junior hockey in lockout limbo while they await its end and the NHL jobs that are sitting there for them.

Former New York Rangers GM Neil Smith describes just how badly the 1994-95 lockout damaged the NHL even though the league was able to put together a shortened season.
