A forum for Princeton residents to express opinions about local and national issues
Question of the Week: "What is your reaction to the cancellation of the hockey season?"
"I think it's great because I'm for the owners. I think that the players are overpaid and the prices they get for tickets are too high."
Edward Burokas, Kearney, NJ
"It only makes sense at this point because even if you bring everybody back, who knows where the players are physically. With some in Europe and some here who knows what kind of shape they're in. I was at a game in Hartford 10 years ago and the Buffalo Sabres had a 2 on 1 break and both of them pulled up lame."
Pat Gorman, Queens, NY
"I think that Gary Bettman is the worst commissioner that there has ever been. The principal fact is that there's no hockey and I love hockey. It's my favorite sport. Regardless of issues, there's no hockey season. That's twice since he's been commissioner that there hasn't been hockey for at least part of a season."
Ben Baiser, New Brunswick, NJ
"I'm sorry that they cancelled it, for the players but I do not like professional hockey. I like all college sports. Professional hockey used to be much cleaner. It's now a dirty game with nothing but fights. Plus, I think it's a terrible example for our young kids."
Becky Houston, Rossmoor
"Major disappointment. I love college hockey but it's going to put a lot of people out of work, especially the players. I don't think they are being very realistic about the cut of the market they have. However, I'm still a loyal fan and I'll come back to hockey when it returns."
