Opening day for the National Hockey League (NHL), originally scheduled for October 11, has been pushed back due to the leagues inability to resolve issues related to the lockout until October 24th. The first two week of the season, totaling 82 games throughout the league, were wiped out earlier this week. The main issue causing the delay is deciding how to divide up the three billion dollars in revenue with the players associations.
The league must also consider the economic effects that will occur due to the delay of the season on the various cities across the country. Fans are hopeful the NHL will come to some resolution in the upcoming weeks.
