The third prolonged work stoppage of the Commissioner's tenure has produced much sound and fury. Here are some of the most colorful and notable quotes and tweets from officials, players, media and fans:

"We made a proposal to save an 82-game season and, quite frankly, we're all mystified as to why we're not playing in light of that offer and in light of the fact the players are losing between $8- to $10-million per day." -- at a Nov. 21 press conference after the NHL rejected a CBA offer from the NHLPA

"By the way, I love the players. Nobody should think for a moment I don't." -- in a Nov. 18 interview with Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press
