NHL to Keep on Not Playing

For those of you who may have missed the news (and it would be hard to miss; it was front page news in my town's paper and our "local" team is 100 miles away), the NHL season has been cancelled. That's not actually what I'm writing about. What I'm writing about is to ask why this is worth writing about. The season was supposed to start last fall. It didn't. No games have been played this season. As near as I can tell, nobody has expected for some time that any games would be played this season. So the news is that something that hasn't been happening for several months will continue to not happen for the rest of the year. Wow. That's front page stuff, alright. Isn't this kind of along the lines of Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead? Only, not intended to be funny?
