08:27 AM ET 10.12 | While both Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews said this week that their owner deserved credit for the way he ran the Blackhawks, the lockout remains an obviously touchy subject. It's understandable Hawks players wouldn't criticize their owner publicly even if they wanted to. He'll still be their owner when the lockout ends. But it's unfair to criticize the person who works for the owners -- Commissioner Gary Bettman -- and not point the finger at the people holding the purse strings. "I think it's just embarrassing for everybody," Duncan Keith said. "The fans are the ones that don't have a voice. They're the ones that aren't getting heard in this negotiation. It's tough on them. It's frustrating as players. We want to play hockey."

I just got EA Sports NHL 12/13 game. Unfortunately, when I started the game all I got was a black screen :)

What's embarrassing is Chicago's playoff performances since winning the Cup.

What's truly embarrassing is Chicago's Cup winning goal.

Did I just see a comment where a player actually had something to say about the fans, rather than about himself???
