And just like that the NHL has canceled all November games. So much for that Black Friday return people were talking about a while back.
NHL informs teams games up to and including Nov. 30 will be cancelled. As far as I know, there was no mention of Winter Classic.

Why cancel the whole month when just a week or so ago they just canceled through 11/1? Money baby.
One reason NHL cancelled big block of games is so NHL arenas could re-book for the month of November & recoup some of the lost money

Meanwhile the NHLPA continues to play cheesy love songs in hopes the league will actually sit down with them and negotiate like civilized people.
