What the above article says to me is that a lockout is a certainty. Enjoy your NHL hockey this year as there will not be another season following this one, for at least 1 year. The questions are this:
1. How long will the $300m that the league has squireled away last? You gotta figure that Bettman put it together with the Canadian teams in mind. Do they have enough $$$ to prevent most of the Canadian teams as well as teams like Buffalo form folding?
2. Bettman is going to be a pitbull when it comes to the lockout. He really does seem certain that he is going to ram the under $40m cap down the players throat.

I say contract the teams that cannot afford to pay. The quality of both the game and the league will go up if there were 6 less teams in the league.
