A note to the NHL: When even the president of the United States is telling you to "do right by your fans," you know your lockout has gone on a bit too long. The league and the union haven't exactly progressed in their talks, however, and the likelihood of any games being played this season seems to be decreasing by the day. It's starting to get to the point where the long-term viability of the league could be in danger.
