This lockout hurts, and there's no getting around it. It evokes a deep stinging in the heart, as most would describe it. More NHL related pain and butthurt after the jump...

Lately, we've learned that the NHL is bringing in federal mediators, such as Guy Serota, to help solve this crisis. As proven by Serota's tweet from his recently deleted Twitter account, we are in good, albeit racially insensitive, hands (maybe).
Meanwhile in Europe, select big name NHL stars have found temporary teams. Even players like Paul Bissionnette have new homes. For fan favorite BizNasty, it's the United Kingdom's Cardiff Devils, where he has posted (as of the time of this article's publishing) an impressive 16 points in 7 games. Flyer's center Claude Giroux was recently forced to leave his lockout team, the DEL's Eisbaren Berlin, due to concussion/neck issues. Finally Pittsburgh Penguin's star center Evgeni Malkin was recently seen in photographs being mounted by goats, and even better, spooning with a white lion.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to crawl back into the cave of NHL-related depression that I've been living in for the past three months. It's cold and sad, but at least I don't have to run the risk of seeing Johnathan Cheechoo try to play hockey.
