For the 10 people who are following the NHL through yet another lockout, the league announced that all regular-season games from Oct. 11 to the 24 have been cancelled; this includes six Dallas Stars games, two at home.
The Dallas Stars' games affected are:
Oct. 13 at Phoenix
Oct. 14 at Anaheim
Oct. 16 v. Phoenix
Oc. 18 v. Minnesota
Oct. 20 at Boston
Oct. 23 at Ottawa
The Stars don't lose any great "gate" team such as the Red Wings, Rangers or Leafs.
Previously the only games cancelled had been on the preseason variety, which no one cares about except the coaches, prospects and journeymen trying to get a spot.
This cancellation is what we call a serious "warning shot" to the players, who now are faced with the reality they will start missing checks.
