The Sabres' fourth preseason game would have been tonight, with the team heading up the QEW to face the Toronto Maple Leafs in Air Canada Centre. Because a bunch of rich guys can't figure out how to split $3.3 billion a year, that game and all the other preseason contests have been canceled.
That brings us to our fourth edition of: Who is hurting tonight because of the lockout?
*It's the guy who would have been working the grill and earning tips at Burkies Dog House.
*It's the security guard who would have been checking the media's laptop bags at Gate 2A.
*It's the parking lot attendant on Yonge Street.
*It's the owner of the gas station on Erin Mills Parkway, who is missing out on a huge sale of Ruffles All Dressed chips, Lay's Ketchup chips and Smarties, purchased by the Buffalo sportswriter who always stops to get the childhood snacks that his half-Canadian wife loves.
Once again, it's not the owners and players.
