08:17 AM ET 01.22 | The players have suffered another indignity coming out of the lockout. Several NHL teams, including the Vancouver Canucks, will not be travelling this season in quite the style to which they have become accustomed. All seven Canadian NHL teams and a handful of other U.S.-based teams use Air Canada's Jetz executive-class charter service to travel during the season. The aircraft are outfitted with first-class seating throughout the cabin, or at least they were. ... [Air Canada] reconfigured five of its six charter jets and sent them back into regular passenger service. That leaves just one plane that is completely outfitted with first-class seats. Goodbye leg room. The Canucks only learned last week about the changes and are not happy about them.

Who did they poll?

self-loathing torontonians and toronto exiles...
