haha...well that is good news to hear. I am waiting to hear what happens today, see the NHLs response to the PA's counterproposal. After the rumor that came out last week, that owners have told bettman that losing the full season is not an option, I think there will definitely be a season. I also think realistically the cap has to be 65 million or somewhere around there, the only way it could be at 60 million is if there was a rollback, which is not happening, or the escrow for the year is taken into account when calculating the cap per team, which I don't think will happen either, it has to be at 65 million.
