Could be good news, but I'm not getting my hopes up too much yet.
I don't know how you can have any kind of "make whole" provision now that there have been games lost plus the Winter Classic has been cancelled - it's hard to see how the league would come close to generating $3.3 billion in HRR for 2012-13. So how are you going to pay anyone their full salary without losing your shirt? It's a strange notion, if the NHL is, in fact, offering it.
