The NHL on Thursday canceled games from Oct. 11 to 24 because of the lockout, which is expected to linger.

For the Flyers, that erases four games _ at home against Boston, Pittsburgh and Winnipeg, and on the road against the New York Islanders.

Maybe it's time the lead negotiators _ NHL commish Gary Bettman and NHLPA boss Donald Fehr _ are replaced by a season-ticket holder from two teams?

Hey, they couldn't do worse. Bettman and Fehr have shut down a league with record revenues and an NBC TV deal. That's hard to do.

Meanwhile, Danny Brriere and Claude Giroux have decided to play in Germany and will become the sixth and seventh Flyers to play overseas.

The others: Wayne Simmonds, Ilya Bryzgalov, Jake Voracek, Ruslan Fedotenko and Matt Read.

The owner-imposed NHL lockout has reached 19 days. And counting. Both sides aren't budging on their positions, and this isn't going to end any time soon.
