"To me it just looks like Bettman doesn't want to start unless he gets everything he wants," Sakic told reporters. "So I don't expect hockey. We all hope [a new collective bargaining agreement] gets done, but to be realistic, I don't see it happening right now."


Pretty much the same feeling I have. As I said before, it's like Bettman is intent on cancelling the season just to prove a point. BTW, for those that said that Bettman's cap is going to be in the mid $30's range. Guess again. I just read that the cap number that he has promised to the owners is a hard cap of $31m. We may very well not only not see hockey this year, but maybe next year as well. Kiss the NHL buh-bye in the USA.
