It shouldn’t have come to this. Thursday is supposed to be the start of another National Hockey League season, a day most ardent hockey fans look forward to all summer long. The Ottawa Senators should be at the Bell Centre taking their morning skate, then heading back to the hotel to rest up for their season opener against their second-most-hated division rival, the Montreal Canadiens.

The sick, hilarious creators of everyone’s favourite Taiwanese animated shorts are taking aim at the NHL again, this time over the ongoing lockout. The last time New Media Animation checked in, it asked whether LA’s Stanley Cup victory would popularize the game with people other than gang members who enjoy wearing Kings merch. This time, you can see Gary Bettman cutting off the NHL shield’s arms and a nasty owner stealing more than his share of poutine from a member of the Philadelphia Flyers.
