So, when does Lisa Raitt legislate those hockey players back to work? Canada’s economy is recovering but it is still fragile, etc.! #cdnpoliJordan Owens
Heading back to Parliament. Will we see #NHL back to work legislation? (Not likely) :) #cdnpoliElizabeth May MP
Parliament’s back in session! Parliament’s back in session! C’mon, @PMHarper , cram an "NHL as essential service" bill in there! #CdnpoliDon Landry
In fact, NDP MP Alexandre Boulerice was quick to inquire if the Conservative government has plans to legislate an end to the lockout:
Boulerice is making a statement about legislating an end to the NHL lockout. Hands up everyone who didn’t see this one coming. #HoC #cdnpoliDale Smith-Journo
Anyway, it didn’t go over well: 
One thing’s certain as the House of Commons resumes: various MPs making NHL lockout jokes! YaaaaaaaaayTy Stapleton
What we really need is a sarcastic members statement on the NHL. #cdnpoli #HOCcolin horgan
I wish MP’s would shut up about Hockey. #QP #cdnpoliDominic Terry
It’s heating up with NDP hockey funnies against the #CPC #cdnpoli #questionperiodKarla
NDP saying ending the #NHL lock out would make a good chapter the the PM’s infamous hockey book. #cdnpoliTom Kott
