To me not changing where the Jets play is idiotic. They have to draw up a whole new sked anyways so why not just make a change. The whole reason the PA scoffed at the last realignment was posturing for this CBA so that shouldn't be a problem here.

Should we have a draft on what day and time this thing will end? My guess is Jan 7th at 6PM but Ive been optimistic about this thing all along.

Just so I know we're in agreement when the NHL does return, Ponikarovsky's goal song will be Pony by Ginuwine, yes?

Works for me, but it either has to be a mash-up:



...or has to have dancing Star Trek characters in it:





That second vid is actually slightly disturbing.

rumor has it, that it will be a combination of current in conference dates remaining from what should have been this years 82 game schedule, plus new ones.

I want to see Scheifele centering Poni and Antro. I think that would be a great third line.

Interesting... so if they right the ship on time, our season may start @ home vs Philly (Jan 15), the Rangers (17th), or the Sens (19th).

At this point I actually hope they cancel the season...I'd rather have a fresh start in Oct. without the negative feelings.

Have to agree, the whole point of the Jets not moving into the western conf. was the old CBA. Hope the realignment issue is settled for the start of the 2013-2014 season. As much as I hate to lose seeing TB and Washington on a regular basis the Jets do belong in the NHL central.

The only problem with the deal not getting done at the deadline is after they cancel the season what is the Gaurentee that next season starts on time? all time pressure goes away the moment this season is cancelled up to the end of preseason games next year again? I am done being suprised by either side but I would prefer something gets done before the 2013 draft and if it doesn't get done at the deadline I don't see that happening.

While we have the junior hockey going I have pretty much tuned out on the CBA chatter other than what I see on that's hockey once in a while when I am bored.

Thinking today will be a big day. Either there is movement and a deal close, or NHLPA files their disclaimer of interest. Either way, something should happen today of note.

As much as I've hated the process this lockout has taken (who hasn't?), I've remained oddly optimistic each time there seems to be a spur of hope, and with each time I have obviously been led to disappointment. But, as many have speculated over the days leading us to today, this is the deadline or time in which many figured Fehr was leading his union to, the final days in which the NHL could salvage a season. So, here we are.

Either this was game-plan all along, like many speculate, or Fehr is all hands on deck and really doesn't care if the season is lost.

We'll see. One way or another, in the coming days we are about to find out.

This is the main reason why i don't want the season canceled. It's gone on long enough that, yah, i'm pretty well adjusted to their being no hockey and would do fine without it for a season, but if they don't get a deal done, it just seems like we're back to square one, without any pressure on either side.

hopefully they resolve this in the next couple days, i'm pretty tired of getting my hopes up. The news so far sounds good, progress being made, etc etc etc, that'd be great- if we hadn't heard it 3-4 times before already.

You'll all be happy to know I haven't told my wife this time. The lat few times that they were close I told her and was met by a wall of pessimism and each time the talks fell apart. I haven't said a ****ing word this time, so if my suspicions are correct and my old lady truly is jinxing the season, there should be hockey soon.

Unfortunately my Wife came down with the flu on boxing day, and after looking after her I was the lucky guy to get it next.

I just want the NHL back, so this place and my interest levels can peak again. This lockout has really taken a toll on me in terms of my productivity here on the boards. I'm still here every day, just don't have the same urge to post. Just want the NHL back...

You know I've been okay with the lockout.

I became a Jets fan back in '90 when I moved back to the 'Peg as a teen. But even back then there were arena rumblings. The team was almost as often in the regular news as in the sports pages.

After '96 I half-heartedly followed another team, but it wasn't the same.

But by '04, following Jetsowner, I felt a team was possible again. I described myself as a Jets fan. But that meant following BOG meetings and hockey financials, not the on-ice product.

So this feels just like old times as a Jets fan.

Interesting discussion on hockey central.
Nick Kypreos apparently has heard that the NHL and NHLPA have talked about adding four teams to the playoffs. Not clear if it would just be for the shortened season (to increase revenue) or if it would be a lasting change.

I haven't spoken to ANYBODY about it. A lot of my friends and family are more casual hockey fans then anything else. They'll watch the games and stuff, but they just know they haven't agreed to anything yet. I've just kept my mouth shut and not said a god damn word about to anyone, so they are all safely in the dark. Just in case its one of them as well.

There's no question in my mind that my wife is jinxing it though. Absolutely none. So my lips will remain sealed.
