04:13 PM ET 12.26 | As the NHL lockout remains at a stand still, general managers from around the league are starting to join the fans in the public complaints about how the league is handling this situation. One general manager, Lou Lamoriello of the New Jersey Devils, spoke with Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger in Newark and expressed his feelings on the lack of progress being made to resolve the lockout. "I'm embarrassed for the game," Lamoriello said of the lockout stretching in to December. "It's coming down to the wire right now. We've just got to trust the people that are involved. I'm embarrassed we are where we're at. That's the best expression I can use." Lamoriello is echoing the feelings of the fans.

I don't want to hear from anybody in the hockey world about this mess anymore. I'm inoterested in only in when the game is on. The same goes for the other sports. And bying in jersey's or shirts, or anything else from these sports, you can forget it. Not going to the games anymore as well.

Give it a couple years, and he won't have to be embarrassed. Bettman seems hell bent on killing the NHL as a whole.

As a lifelong Hockey fan, the sport is a punchline these days from my friends, but the owners and players are both to blame for who they hired as their ring leaders. The owners have kept Bettman as the Commish, yet he is on his 3rd lockout and cancelled a whole season before. The players hired Donald Fehr who is responsible for cancelling the World Series in 1994 which hurt the sport of baseball for years after that. What did these two parties think was going to happen other then 2 guys who will sacrfice the good of the game just so they can claim victory in the end to feed their ego. Unbelievable.....
