I realize this is a BIG if but if a deal were to get done soon, how difficult would it be to squeeze in an extra week of hockey to get to the 61 game? Would it be too much at this point?
Arenas are booked before the season starts. My understanding is they haven't been rescheduling the games, but rather just cancelling them in advance. Adding new games would be a nightmare logistically.
