The drop dead date will not be until January. In January of 1999 the NBA was in a lockout and they got a deal done ON the drop dead date.

And just to encourage people, the NBA was in a much similar situation, with both sides going no where.

Although the NBA is looking at the same nuclear winter after the upcoming season, we are facing this year, which should fuel the NHL and NHLPA even more to get a deal done THIS season.
