Hockey fans are anxiously awaiting word on whether or not the 2012-2013 season will begin as the NHL Lockout that started September 15 has put on hold the thrilling match-ups and fierce rivalries of the 2012-2013 season. On a positive note, “experts” seem certain the lockout will end soon, and players will take to the ice before the start of the 2013 Winter Classic. And when the puck finally drops, you’ve got to have NHL Center Ice on DISH because this season promises to be one for the history books.
Why a lockout? The main issue for the current lockout circulates around the percentage of NHL revenue that makes up player’s salaries. NHL Commissioner, Gary Bettman, wants this number to drop to 11 percent, which would increase the owners’ share of the revenue from 43 percent to 54 percent.”
