This being said..... has the league (i.e. GB or BD) officially and publicly stated that January 11th is indeed the real drop dead date to cancel the season?
NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman has previously said that a 2013 regular season at least 48 games in length would have to begin Jan. 19. The NHL has already cancelled games from the original 2012-13 season through Jan. 14.
Not Jan 11 per se but common sense would dictate that 1 week is necessary to get back from Europe and practice with teammates.
