    NHL Lock Out Impacts Arena District Businesses
    By: NADIA BASHIR | NBC4
    Published: October 26, 2012

    The National Hockey League announced Friday it is canceling the 2012-2013 regular season schedule through November 30, due to an ongoing lock out. The news is leaving many worried the 2013 All-Star Game scheduled for Columbus next January will also be canceled.

    “It’s frustration. Both the league and the players just need to get the deal done,” said local Arena District business owner Mike Darr.

    The casino has three restaurants and plentiful drinks throughout. There’s no reason to leave to go eat or drink, whether it’s on the West Side or Arena District.

    Realignment Talk- Columbus for Winnipeg?
    By Mike MacLean on Dec 28, 8:45p

    First, the NHL and NHLPA first need to come to an agreement on a new CBA before we can talk about a season, shortened, cancelled, whatever.

    Second of all, Brooks is connected, obivously. I still wonder about the authenticity of this tweet though. Is it something the league is seriously considering, or was it a passing remark, tasty enough to grow some legs?

    The idea of teams playing in-conference only in a shortened season is another issue that remains in theory only. It makes sense, if we’re talking a 48-game season for the emphasis to be on teams in each conference duking it out for the chance to face the team from the other conference in the Stanley Cup finals. In fact, given everything, the though of East and West not meeting until the Finals is downright awesome.

    Brooks goes on to say that Columbus would move to the Southeast Division and Winnipeg would move to the Central for this season only, pending further realignment in the future.

    NHL AND NHLPA REACH DEAL ON COLLECTIVE BARGAINING AGREEMENT

    After 113 days of the lockout that included a marathon 16-hour negotiation session on Saturday, a tentative deal on a new 10-year collective bargaining agreement has been reached between the National Hockey League and NHL Players’ Association.

    While the Blue Jackets may not field an awesome team this season, any revenue can and will help the city!

    They signed a 10 year agreement this time, so any labor issues will be far down the road.

    Meanwhile, inside the arena…

    Our Diner-themed concession stands offer traditional arena fare such as hot dogs, J&J pretzels, popcorn, assorted Pepsi products and a wide variety of beers featuring Anheuser-Busch products.

    Our Grille-themed concession stands add a few twists to the traditional fare with choices like Montgomery Inn BBQ smokehouse pork sandwich and grilled chicken sandwich.

    Now serving Papa John’s Pizza at four newly renovated and conveniently located concourse locations. Our Papa John’s 8″ Personal Pizzas are freshly made and never frozen.

    Finally, to satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth, Coldstone ice cream, Dippin Dots, Cotton Candy, Frosted Almonds and Tim Hortons coffee is available throughout the arena.

    Sure, there’s concessions inside the Arena, but it’s not really an apples-to-apples comparison. Generally speaking, people go to the Arena for an allotted amount of time (a game, a concert, an event) and then leave. In fact, they probably don’t even let people inside too much before an event, and they usher everyone out afterward.

    I’m hoping the owners offer some damn good “we’re sorry to put you through this” deals for the first few games. It may take a little wooing to restore our faith.

    Columbus Blue Jackets’ players glad to be back on ice
    12:19 AM, Jan 8, 2013
    Written by Rusty Miller, Associated Press

    A dozen or so Columbus Blue Jackets players went through a light workout on Monday, their first unofficial meeting since the NHL and the players’ union reached a tentative agreement after a lengthy lockout. All said they were pleased just to get back to work.

    “It’s just great to see all the boys back in Columbus here and skating together,” defenseman James Wisniewski said of the skatearound at the public rink adjoining Nationwide Arena.

    By: DENISE YOST | NBC4
    Published: January 07, 2013

    After more than 100 days, the NHL lockout is over, which is good news for fans of the Columbus Blue Jackets. But with two league lockouts in the past decade and a less-than-exceptional run on the ice, will the Blue Jacket faithful return to Nationwide Arena to support the team?
