The 2013 48-game NHL regular season begins on Saturday, January 19.

I guess the quickest way to forget about this whole fiasco is to get things going as quickly as possible, before the fans have too much time to think about what just happened. Will the fans return? You bet we will, but we’ll feel icky doing it.
There are no winners here, all sides lost.
