09:05 AM ET 02.05 | The Premiere Games in Europe that have opened the NHL season the past five years could be a casualty of collective bargaining, though sources within the league and the NHLPA have told Slap Shots the sides are attempting to strike an agreement under which the matches would be scheduled.

I have a feeling that the North American expats who make up the crowds for near exihibitons will find something else to do with their time and money.

The travel time for an east coast team to get to Europe is probably less than the travel time for an east coast team to play on the left coast. Why is it such a big deal?

Fehr's in the picture now. Nothing good can come from this.

I wish the Buttgoblin & his minions would stop worrying about selling the game to new fans and worry a little more about those of us who have supported it for many, many years and are concerned that the league is watering down our passion.

I agree.....fix the mess you have at home, before looking to greener pastures.

I agree with those that say the travel is not too exhausting, but I still have zero use for these games being played in Europe.I wish the Buttgoblin & his minions would stop worrying about selling the game to new fans and worry a little more about those of us who have supported it for many, many years and are concerned that the league is watering down our passion.

we will be here regardless...so he doesnt give a damn about us.
