There has been a lot for hockey fans to be angry about in 2012.
The first six months of the year saw vitriol directed at any number of incidents that ended up with or without punishment. But if you took all that anger and tripled it multiplied it by 100, you'd probably get close to the level of disgust hockey fans have felt the final six months of 2012 with CBA negotiations -- or lack thereof, at times -- dominating the headlines as we sit and wait and wonder when the NHL will return. The record books will label this season the "2013 NHL season" if there even is one.
