To those who haven't followed it recently, there may be something happening.
Recently, the NHLPA went the legal route outside the NHL, basically saying that Canadian labor laws actually prevent the NHL from locking out the players, at least, the ones on Canadian teams. And they apparently had a legitimate case, since there was a meeting set up for tomorrow in front of the Alberta Labour Review board, with both the NHLPA and the NHL attending.
Well, now the meeting has been cancelled for reasons unknown. If the league concedes this point to the NHLPA, it'll be a big step toward getting the rest of the league out of lockout. After all, how many owners do you believe will be happy that the Montreal/Calgary/Edmonton/etc. players can train at the facilities, etc?
Talk about being given a big advantage when the league restarts...
