Live discussion: Implications of NHL lockout

October 09, 2012

Among the topics that could be covered:

Does this mean the Kings will be Stanley Cup champions forever?

How will this hurt the long-term popularity of the sport?

The NHL has already canceled the first 14 days of the season. As Elliott wrote last week,

"The Kings, who were scheduled to raise their Stanley Cup banner Oct. 12 at Staples Center, will lose six games, four of them at home. The Ducks, scheduled to open Oct. 12 at the Honda Center against the San Jose Sharks, also will lose six games, five of them at home.

"A long lockout looms as potentially harmful to the Kings, who had hoped to build on their championship buzz. In addition, their parent company, AEG, was recently put up for sale and the franchise's value could be adversely affected by financial losses and a lengthy absence from the ice."
