Here we are, nearly two months into the lockout and a month past when the NHL's regular season should have started, and we are still without the game that we love.
Hopefully, the owners' lockout of the players will come to a close soon.
For right now, here is a look at the 10 biggest headaches facing the National Hockey League today. These are not all related to the lockout, although many of them are more or less self-inflicted.
Hopefully, with a little cooperation between the players and the owners, at least some of these can be worked out soon.
As always, your comments and additions are most welcome.
