There is something going on to night---but your guess is as good as mine. One report out the Sweden suggested the NHLPA was going to shutdown discussions until June.

Like I said flame away. As of right now, the nhl players that are playing in the British Elite league have not informed their teams they either wont be coming back from North America (some went over for christmas) or that they are leaving shortly. Why do I know this part? I work part-time for the British Elite League Marketing department (mostly pre-game prep work for visiting teams)
So, basically, the lockout could end, and then again, it could not. Earth-shattering!
