I wouldn't be too worried about it at this point.
I am not concerned with the 2012-13 season if there is indeed one.

However if the new CBA has a limit of 5 years on all contracts, then not being proactive now with some of the key contracts (Lucic, Seguin, Rask, Marchand, Horton) expiring in 2013 could make negotiations in 2013 very difficult.
