The NHL’s work stoppage continues to take its toll on those with no control over it.

According to Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Blues made 20 layoffs last week and told all other staffers their salary and/or hours would be cut.

Half the layoffs were reportedly in the sales department, which as you can imagine doesn’t have much to sell these days.

No word if the laid-off employees will get their jobs back once the lockout comes to an end. (Whenever that might be.)

    You’re taking TV money for not providing games to cover, and you can’t be decent enough to carry 20 people through your charade? At this point, I’m disgusted.
