Yes, they played 48 games, which is about what I see happening again. However, it wasn't until February 16th before they actually cancelled the whole year. That being said, most insiders think it will be much earlier this year if it happens.
They cancelled through January 14th already, so my guess is January 10th a deal is done and 10 days for travel and camp and games starting the 20th.
Some people are pretty pessimistic about these negotiations, and I don't blame them based on the insane ego and stubborness of both sides, but they are so close on the main issues it doesn't make any sense to miss an entire season.
If they miss a whole year it will be one of if not the biggest tragedy the NHL has ever seen and a complete and utter joke that just shows the misguidedness of the priorities of some of the people involved.
