08:23 AM ET 09.11 | A new wrinkle has been added to the lockout mix, as has another chapter in the escalating vitriol. A scheduled Tuesday morning hearing with the Alberta Labour Relations Board -- where the NHL Players' Association was to argue that locking out members of the Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames would be unlawful -- ended up being cancelled Monday night. Deputy commissioner Bill Daly had been expected to travel to Edmonton for the hearing and told The Canadian Press in an email: "This is a joke." However, after the NHL withdrew its claim with the labour board, Daly said he felt the league still had the legal authority to impose a lockout in Alberta. The union disagreed.

It's never about truth or justice with the legal profession. Just billable hours.

Eh. Depends on where you work in the legal profession. There are still good guys/gals in it. ;)
