Fresh Links: Holding Your Breath Edition

This probably won't be a common sight this october.

So there's two days until the lockout definitely happens. Anyone else still holding out a bit of hope that the NHL and PA will make a last-minute agreement and there will be hockey in October?

Anyone?

Bueller?

It totally sucks for everyone in and around the fans/players/owners. Fans can say "oh, shrug, I'll watch something else even though I really miss my sport." The owners and players can roll around in their millions; players can play somewhere else. But what about the concession stand workers when there are no games to work? The PR teams when there are no relations to be made? The advertising firms who have nothing to advertise? This sucks.

After the jump, where one Bruins forward will definitely play if there's a lockout, the players aren't exactly nice guys, and more...
