    The WHA, likely.
    If you go through a lot of hammers each month, I don't think it necessarily means you're a hard worker.
    It may just mean that you have a lot to learn about proper hammer maintenance.

    Keith Primeau signed with the Flyers for 4 years and $17 million. Good move by the Flyers.

    Brett had said that he wanted to originally remain in the NHL to get second in scoring behind Gretzky . He's less than 100 behind Howe. Now without a contract , he just might say forget about it and join the WHA.

    If there is no NHL this season, I hope the CBC will show the WHA or the juniors or women's hockey.

    I am thinking TSN and Sportsnet would get the WHA, it would be a huge deal for either of them. If the NHL is off they will get a ton of ratings and we all need some hockey to watch.

    There are a bunch of NHL guys who have signed with European teams, with the stipulation that if/when the lockout ends, they'll go back to their original teams.

    I hope they get the situation resolved before Sept. 15th, but as others here have said, it's not looking good.

    I think there's a real possibility of no NHL at all next year..the 2 sides seem farther apart then ever before. I don't think either side is gonna back off on the salary cap issue. I can't even imagine what the winter will be like with no hockey.

    Anyone know who some of the big unrestricted free agents are? Dont think teams will be chomping at the bit to jump into free agency with this uncertainty looming.
