A fable for the hockey lockout...

A few months back, a tale started about a ruthless group of owners who decided they were going to

and wait out the players until they caved in to their demands.  By doing this, the owners felt that they were really

and believed that by locking out the players they would keep more of their Gold Coins in their pockets.

AU is the chemical symbol for Gold...work with me here

Well, almost 4 months passed since the raising of Lord Stanley's trophy, and the owners finally realized that the players were calling their bluff.  The owners told Mr. Bettman to act

and start negotiating a better

for all parties involved.

In order for a full 82 game season to be played, the sides have approximately 10 days to work out a deal in order to get the season rolling by November 2nd. 

I don't know about everyone out there, but if this actually happened, I'd certainly be


with it.

Praying that everyone comes to their senses sooner rather than later....
