I happenned to have an NHL Linesman play with us at our open-hockey game at the local rink on Wednesday. I don't want to use his name, as I didn't ask him if I could post his comments. He makes this area his off-season home. Basically, he said that he has been given a plane ticket to attend NHL Officials Training Camp (they have camp too), and if there is no progress by the 17th, he's supposed to return his ticket to Management and "find something else to do." If there is any progress in talks between the 15th and the 17th, he's been told to use the plane ticket and come to camp.

He also mentioned that some players (particulary a certain former Ranger playing center for Atlanta) have told their GMs that if there is a lockout, they will have to file for bancruptcy.
