I'll only be surprised if we get into December/January and there's still no season
Exactly. This has always been what was expected to happen. Sure, there was some hope that a new CBA could have been agreed upon and we wouldn't miss any games, but the common thinking has been that there would be a lockout and it would be over at some point before the Winter Classic. Whether that's at the end of October or a couple days before the Winter Classic, that's been the question. I don't think anyone can completely rule out a year-long lockout, but I'd be surprised if the players and NHL threw away yet another season.
