There might be a lockout for a brief time, but I don't think they'll miss any games.

Think it will be similar to the NBA. Have talks come down to the wire, cancel a few games but play on starting sometime around Christmas.

They'll get it done eventually, just not in time

Too much money at stake for both sides, to cancel the whole season

There will be a season, but it will probably be shortened, unfortunately.

Voted no. Don't feel good about this at all, especially since we're dealing with Fehr and Bettman who both masturbate to work stoppages.

I'd say no, but if there is, it will be a short lockout

I don't see a deal happening until the owners improve revenue sharing and the players give some contract concessions. That won't happen until games are missed. I'm thinking there will be a 40-60 game regular season and a full Stanley Cup playoffs.
