Unless Jamison closes the deal by Jan 31, nothing will be over. However, if will almost certainly be effectively over. The new city board was put in place, at least partially, due to their stance that the deal currently out there is bad for the city. So you have to figure that any new deal with Jamison will be better for the city. Whether a new proposed deal is for $150 million or $200 million or $75 million, doesn't really matter. The question would then become, if Jamison couldn't close the deal when it was much better for him, why would anyone think he could close a deal that is worse for him?

So the by far the most likely option is that the season goes along and the NHL plays out the string. No one will say much either way until after the season.
