The players have no choice but to accept whatever deal the owners offer at this point.

It will be done shortly. It has to. Think of everything that must get done:
draft, sign/release players, get advertisers on aboard, get a TV deal done, season ticket sales... All this before training camp in Sept.
I say 1st week of July, Hockey's back. No way they don't start the season on time.

Also, I heard that part of the CBA, is allowing the players to do the Olympics, and Gretzky wants a mini camp for Canada in Aug. Deal must be done, to allow NHL players.
