The labor dispute between the NHL and its players can get a little perplexing at times, what with the escrow and the HRR and the linkage and all.

You know what cuts through the verbiage? Cartoons!

Or maybe just an amusing graphic restating of the facts. You decide.

Wow, that was bleak. But it also succinctly captured the powerless outrage of the fans as we see another season slowly falling off the cliff.
