Attention hockey fans: if you read The News & Observer print edition on Friday, you'll be seeing an apology from the National Hockey League.

The NHL, following a long, frustrating lockout that lasted 113 days, realizes it strained the loyalty of its fans. That's why it is placing advertisements in several U.S. and Canadian newspapers in NHL markets -- including The N&O -- telling fans the league is "committed to earning back your trust and support."

The NHL season, reduced to 48 games because of the lockout, begins Saturday.

not good

last hockey season practically all of chip's stories would have several comments. this season no one seems to be commenting. is that a sign that fans have lost interest? i would say it is a good sign.
