The announcement of the NHL and the Players Association reaching an agreement to end the lockout in the early hours of Jan. 6 came with quite a few sighs of relief. It also came with a lot of fists clenched in frustration.
The problem is, none of us knows exactly where to direct that frustration. While it's undeniable that some of the frustration will be pointed towards Commissioner Gary Bettman (who gets booed at arenas across the league), the rest is not as clear.
Whenever any sport goes through a lockout, or a strike, it comes down to millionaires versus billionaires. The easy target is owners and the league.

Heartbreak has become a theme of the UNO hockey season over the last few weeks. It seemed appropriate then that the Mavs would have their season end on a goal in a tie game with just 42 seconds remaining in the third period.
