Extend the season until May 1. 2 months of playoffs. They can play more games with less travel. The NBA played a full schedule. The Knicks traveled to the west coast. They played 4 in 5/6 nights. The NHL can't do that. If the NHLPA disclaims interest and dissolves and then get a labor deal,it will take a little longer than 10 days. They will need to get the union back together. Settle any anti-trust lawsuits filed. The CBA settlement will take care of any lawsuits filed.
Any hockey would be welcomed at this point. Just get a deal done. This posturing is getting old, it's not worth losing a whole season again, not this time around.
