Part 2 of 5 pieces exploring the Kübler-Ross model as it applies to the lockout.

Elisabeth Kübler-Ross worked with terminally ill patients for a long time, and wrote a book called On Death and Dying in 1969. In it, she laid out the 5 stages of grief, or Kübler-Ross model. This week we will explore the 5 stages of grief in the Mourning Skates. Appropriate, no?

Today's stage is: Anger

I can't believe that asshole Jeremy Jacobs is going to lock out a whole season just to save a few bucks. And don't get me started on Ed Snider and Gary Bettman, those guys don't give a shit about the so-called "greatest fans in the world." We're just walking wallets to them, and we have to suffer so that a couple years down the road, a number on one of their spreadsheets doesn't go down as much. I can't believe they're doing this to us!

I hate the Owners/Bettman/Daly for locking out the fans!

Health note: If someone is grieving, it's healthiest to agree with them and let them continue to grieve in their own way rather than talk them out of it. The stages are often not followed in a particular order, and people often bounce around to different stages throughout a day. Please be mindful of your fellow fans.
