There is nothing else he could really say haha. Even as a pessimist I know he can't give that much information out to us.

Daly also tells me the reports out there that the lockout is over and a deal is done is "not true."

It's not true that it's done. But it's about to get done.

If the NHL is smart (note: they arent) they get this done today and can announce it on NBC while half of America is watching the NFL playoffs between 4:30 and 10:30

Lots of other people who discuss the business side of this whole mess with, for the most part, none of the emotional overreactions.

To a native speaker, it sounds like someone who doesn't know anything but wants to sound like he has important information.

Are there rumored to be any significant rule changes in the new CBA

52 games would be great!

Are NHLers going to be allowed to play in the Olympics. I'm surprised this hasn't been discussed yet.

This is just me saying... I am not saying or even expecting that lockout ends today but...


Team USA won today. NBC has NFL game today. So, technically, if the lockout were to end before the game on NBC ends, that would give a huge boost to NHL in american market as they could announce both news at some point during NFL game.

Come to think of it, how has this not been part of this epic saga yet?

Just saw on the CBC news, lots of Sens fans tuning out of the game and simply dont care anymore.

Businesses are hit the hardest with all the lost revenue. Maybe not so much in the US but in Canada, those pubs are filled up on weekdays/ends by the hockey on tv. If theres no season this year, the game will lose a lot of fans.

They have 6 more days to save the season, doesnt look good.

True, because if it is done tomorrow, no chance does Fox or CBS even mention it during their games.

Who else is looking forward to teams trying to dump salary in a hurry if cap is set low? Could make for a crazy few weeks of camp leading into season.

The lack of drama on this front for a while has me assuming it hasn't been touched.
