Just when you thought the NHL lockout was almost over, disappointment has reared its ugly head. More games canceled, and no resolve in site.

At the end of last week, it seemed like the NHLPA and the Owners were almost to an agreement on the lockout. Now, it seems as though they are working backwards, instead of forward.

The NHL announced today that they are canceling all games through the end of 2012. Now it looks like there definitely won't be hockey until at least 2013, or we could see a season canceled all together.  That's now 526 total games that have been claimed by the lockout.
