Remember last week, when negotiations between the NHL and NHLPA collapsed? Don Fehr gave a press conference, saying the two sides were close, then came back and said that talks had broken off, and then Gary Bettman gave what was likely the angriest media availability of his NHL tenure, insisting that the owner’s offer of $300 million in “make whole” payments was now off the table.
The two sides met on Wednesday, and despite the rhetoric seem not to have moved much at all from their positions during the ‘owners/players only’ meetings.

Because how much b-roll of Gary Bettman walking in and out of a building can you possibly watch?

This installment of the Worst to First Jerseys features the Winnipeg Jets, and much thanks to Jets Nation for letting me guest post on their blog. On my own blog, I talk about about graphic design in hockey and I'll be doing the jerseys for the rest of the league over time, so come by Hockey By Design to check it out.
By John van der Woude
The big question for the Jets is which jerseys should be included? Did I ignore the jerseys of the Jets incarnation that moved to Phoenix to become the Coyotes? Or, do I include the jerseys of the Atlanta Thrashers, the same organization that now resides in Winnipeg? Or, do I decide to get really lazy, ignore both and make this the easiest post to write ever, with only their current jersey? Or do I throw everything into the mix since I'll never get the chance to tear apart some awful Thrashers jerseys?

Two KHL games for you today. First we have the Czech team Lev facing their Slovakian rivals Slovan, and then Latvian Dinamo Riga playing their Belarusian rivals Dinamo Minsk. Two great games, and absolutely rabid fans. Great seeing packed barns for a hockey game. I almost forgot what it looked like.
