The NHL lockout doesn't appear to be ending anytime soon.

With both the owners and the players far away from any sort of resolution, the possibility of a cancelled season looms large in the minds of hockey fans.

Fortunately, social media serves as the great psychiatrist. Always ready to hear the rants and gripes of fans, Twitter is the sounding board for angry fans and the best place to see updates on negotiations. Unfortunately, there are a lot more complaints than updates on actual negotiations.

Here's the best of Twitter on the lockout.

Katie Strang of ESPN reports that NHL commissioner Gary Bettman has proposed a two-week moratorium on negotiations.

CBS Sports reports that if the NHL lockout forces the league to cancel the entire season, Teemu Selanne is likely to retire.

Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer gave the NHL the award for "Most Nonsensical and Clueless Organization Imaginable," just barely beating out the incumbent NCAA.

Scott Burnside of ESPN voiced his frustration with the potential two-week moratorium on negotiations.

Jordan Fabian of Univision may have uncovered the reason behind Hostess closing its doors.

Count Michael Richards as one of the many that just want to have hockey back in their life.

Looking across the Twittersphere, there's a lot of people that just want hockey back. The longer this lockout goes, the more fans will be alienated from the league.

Be sure to stay tuned to Bleacher Report for the latest news on the negotiations going forward.
