Lautenberg, Menendez send NHL lockout letter to Commissioner Bettman

Lautenberg, Menendez send NHL lockout letter to Commissioner Bettman

Since the New Jersey Devils made the NHL Stanley Cup Finals during the last time they were playing hockey, and they brought some extra money into the Prudential Center in Newark.

The NFL referees are back, so now New Jersey’s politicians are looking at the NHL lockout.

CBSSports.com reported that Senators Frank Lautenberg and Robert Menendez sent a letter to NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and Players Association head Donald Fehr reminding them that the Senate has control over interstate commercial activities, including sports.

According to The Score, the senators’ letter asked the parties involved in negotiations to consider the economic impact on their state if the dispute were allowed to continue. They wrote that no New Jersey Devils' games being played in Newark could mean millions of dollars in lost economic activity and jobs in economic times that were already tough.
