The President of the United States has a lot of things to worry about these days.

Not only does he have to deal with rival candidate Mitt Romney, but the 12 days until elections. He also has time to think about the NHL lockout that could ruin the league again, as he did last decade.

Barack Obama talked about the NHL lockout when he appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. When he was on the show, he gave Gary Bettman and Donald Fehr a message.

“Y’all should be able to figure this out. Get this done,” according from the transcript from the show.

The NHL and the NHLPA has been dealing with heat from a variety of places. Now, it is also coming from the Oval Office.
