Jeremy Roenick has never been a guy to hold back on his thoughts.

During his appearance on Costas Tonight with Bob Costas, he spoke his mind freely about what the players should do to get the lockout settled and provided a personal example of what he lost during the 2004-05 season-killing work stoppage.

“Let’s just go to brass dollars, I lost $8.5 million of money that I will never ever see again and I know nobody’s crying in pity for me, but it’s still money that’s lost out of my pocket,” Roenick said.

“In 2004, I was still a prominent star playing at the top of my game and I scored one of the biggest goals of my career in 2004 and after that I struggled just to stay in the league. Losing a year of my professional life hurt me physically. It hurt my reputation.”

“Costas Tonight” is in just its second week of existence, but it looks like the interview show should join “Real Sports” and “Pardon the Interruption” as must-see TV. (No word on whether or not Buzz Bissinger will yell at PHT’s intrepid team of bloggers on future episodes, though.)

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman was one of Bob Costas’ guests during Thursday’s episode, which is airing as we speak and also at 11 pm ET and 2 a.m. ET on NBC Sports Network. If you can’t pull yourself away from hockey action to check it out, enjoy some of the highlights of Bettman’s interview in the video below.
