Betteman was saying yesterday that they'd be starting talks here in the next few weeks. They don't seem to be too eager to get things started up.
Per Elliotte Friedman the Traverse tournament is not cancelled, and they are considering moving it up sooner so that they can still have it.
A couple of weeks ago, the Penticton, B.C.-based Young Stars Tournament, a rookie event featuring the Canucks, Oilers, Flames, Jets, Sharks and Ducks over the past two years, was cancelled due to the uncertain CBA. The teams involved in the other major prospects showcase (Traverse City, MI) are trying to save it by starting earlier. The 2011 participants were St. Louis, the Rangers, Dallas, Carolina, Buffalo, Columbus, Minnesota and Detroit.
