Great news!

Then again, he was positive about our playoff chances in the previous seasons
Gotta love Teemu, stays positive no matter what, even about ketchup.

We should definitely know by late next week whether there will be a season. I can see them still screwing this up. Yesterday was a step backwards it seems.

Again this is classic Fehr. He got his panties in a wad over language changes over HRR? He had the entire document a week ago and didn't notice it? Come on. He held this info so he could get all mad and rally his troops because some were mad he did not decertify.

The league then changed it back to how he wanted and yet he is still saying the NHL tried to pull a fast one. IMO he will continue to make a mountain out of a molehill until the season is gone. He doesn't want a season!

Do players see end game soon? Counted at least 17 at Anaheim Ice for workout. All but three were #NHLDucks and #LAKings.

Eric Stephens ‏@icemancometh
Non-Ducks/Kings at practice were Ryan Miller, Joffrey Lupul and Kent Huskins. Not certain but Scottie Upshall might have been.

Told that Corey Perry and Saku Koivu are flying in today. Andrew Cogliano was a new face out at the rink.

Let's hope this is a good sign, but I'm not holding my breath.

FYI, I think Scottie Upshall lives in the area.

Are those practices at Anaheim Ice everyone is talking about open to the public? It'd be cool to go down and see at least some top level hockey practice.

As for the lockout ending, I'll believe it when I see it.

I'd like to know as well. The players must be renting the ice themselves so I suppose they could make it private.

Yeah, it's not like these are beer leaguers who need to take up a collection to rent a rink. Any one of these guys can pay for a couple hours. Of course I'm sure Teemu has his own keys.

OK, I decided to get off my butt and pursue this. I just called Anaheim Ice and a nice lady told me the following:

1. The practices are usually open to the public but the players can ask for them to be closed.

2. Practices are sometimes scheduled ahead of time and sometimes last minute (as in they call that morning to book).

3. Scheduled practices are occasionally canceled at the last minute as well.

4. The rink always keeps a slot available for the players every day. This allows for their ability to have a last minute, previously unplanned, practice.

And, as of this minute, there is a practice scheduled Monday from 10:30 - 12:00. If something doesn't come up I may try to get over there. The lady did suggest calling first to make sure they haven't cancelled.

So some traction happened today. It looks like the NHL came up to 62.5 mil cap from 60 mil cap in year 2. The players countered at 64.3 from 65. Way to go players. Meet the NHL right in the middle....oh wait.

Man the players sure dont want to give anything. They just take what the NHL offers and ask for more. Classic Fehr.

Teemu was a day off. According to Friedman contracts are capped at a max of 7 years for other free agents and 8 if you're re-signing your own. So much for the hill the owners would die on haha.

Edit: $64.3M cap in 13-14 as well.

Don't mind that cap too much at all.

It's coming down in 13-14 isn't it?

EDIT: Apparently 10 year deal with an opt out clause of 8 years

I think the cap will be staying at the $69M mark or whatever it is this year although I'm not 100% sure of that. There are still a ton of details to come but the 7/8 year deals definitely benefits the Ducks (as far as Getzlaf and Perry go at least) because teams won't be able to circumvent the cap as easily and I assume the year to year contract variance will have been addressed also.

The main thing that will benefit the Ducks is the new revenue sharing system. Under the old system we didn't qualify for revenue sharing but the new system should address that.

The Ducks are definitely better off than under the old CBA but that being said it still could have been better if the owners had of gotten a few more things they wanted.

I'm looking for two things within the next few days:

1) If it's really true that Getzlaf's contract is on the table, ready for him to sign (8 years?), and

2) If there were actually pending deals reached within the lockout that can now be put through due to the CBA being rectified (Luongo to Toronto? Bobby to ____ ?)

I'd be 100% shocked if Bobby is traded with only a few months left on Perry's deal

Yeah I don't think Ryan will be dealt anymore. I do expect a few (probably minor) changes to our roster before the season starts as there will prob be a few buyouts exercised straight away and there were quite a few UFAs left when the lockout began.

So will one way contracts in the minors count against the cap like they talked about earlier?

No idea yet but I'd say so, the NHL was pushing pretty hard for that.

Boudreau saying that we needed LWs should give Bobby some of that security he was looking for.

I'm assuming Rakell and Gibson will be at training camp? McKenzie mentioned sometime back in October that two CHLers can be called up for training camp once it begins or something? What a few weeks those two would have..
