I pray that the Player's Association and NHL owners will be able to recognize the rights, duties and privileges of the other side as well as their own.
I pray that they will be able to see how a prolong lockout damages the economy of an area where NHL hockey is played.
I pray that the player's association will put more attention on improving the feeble pensions of players who have retired.
I pray for love and understanding of each other at the negotiation table.
I pray for a new NHL contract that is sane and promotes a better game of hockey to North America and the world.
And most of all, I pray that this is your prayer too.
The National Hockey League
