05:27 PM ET 11.16 | So after yesterday's great news that collective bargaining agreement talks have broken down between the NHL and NHLPA, we got hit with another right hook to the gut last night. Apparently now the NHL thinks the best course of action would be for the two sides, the NHL and NHLPA, to take a break from talks and meetings for roughly two weeks. Yes, I typed that correctly, and you read it correctly. The NHL wants to take a two-week break from CBA talks and thinks it will help negotiations. According to Jesse Spector of the Sporting News, "As deputy commissioner Bill Daly confirmed to The Associated Press on Thursday night, his boss, Gary Bettman, proposed two-week moratorium on labor negotiations to the NHLPA, a move clearly designed to get negotiations on track by, uh, ummm, OK, it doesn't make any sense."

Center Ice's suggestion for a better tomorrow. Dissolve the NHL and install a more suitable league to replace it. More than enough players available!!!

And by all means take a break for two weeks. You probably have other real important things to deal with these days besides killing the NHL. Toadsuckers!

Now that Saddam and Ghadaffi are dead, the person I hate more than any other on earth is Gary Bettman. Hey Obama, since you've asasinated Americans before, could you deal with Gary? Then kill yourself.

I think one comment is enough from you.
