The fact that they worked out the extraneous stuff already basically suggests there will be a season...albeit just not one for a few months while they negotiate the financial aspects. Everyone knows that they dont want to miss out on the big money in the Winter Classic game so we should have hockey by Jan 1st.
But I think Yahoo will not force everyone to draft now with the lockout in place. They actually already have a link about it too and here's what they said (and the part about the draft):
This article explains how Yahoo! Sports will handle Fantasy Hockey leagues with the current NHL lockout.
Yahoo! Sports is closely monitoring the NHL lockout. For now, however, we will continue with allowing managers to create, join and draft leagues. If you will, business as usual.
Should the NHL lockout end:
We will adjust the game depending on what happens with the lockout and if the NHL's regular-season schedule is affected.
Ramp up the number of draft times in the weeks before the scheduled season start.
Adjust leagues that use the max games played setting, based on the amount of games that are available.
