I think it were a make or break, the NHL would say go to the Olympics.

If not, that would be kinda ridiculous.

The details surrounding it though would have to be negotiated.

Well Bettman says the league is losing 18-20 million a day. So do the math.

The league is going to squeeze in the maximum amount of games for the most money. See tweet below.

So stupid considering it's not even real money they're arguing over now, but just the cap.

Pens 03-04: 11,877 per game.

Florida hasnt even been close to those numbers.. so don't ignore the facts. Just proving a point against those saying Florida doesn't belong in the NHL and that people "dont care".

Well it's definitely real money to the FA's next offseason who'll have a depressed market because half the teams will have no cap space and most of the other half very little budget.

Not sure why people are acting like 2 more days is the end of the world...either way if it's toinight-Sunday or Monday, it's probably the same start date and number of games.

Easy solution: Have the Winter Games in the summer.

Florida's got more devoted fans than they're given credit for.

They said the same thing about the Sens when they were struggling. Not sure why some people can be so quick to turn on another fan base.

Will be my last post it looks like before the lockout ends on Sunday or Monday likely.

This process sucked, not going to lie, but funny times with #DregerFace and what not.

Peace fellas.

Just ignore him, man. People don't pay attention to the Panthers so they assume they're in the same pool as say, the Blue Jackets or Coyotes.

Dust off is the operative word for me, I haven't worn a Devil t-shirt in months

For the first time I finally feel like this is when, not if this gets done. I probably should just avoid this place for the next 24-48 hours though, another dip would drive me to the loony bin.

All in all, appears to be 2 or 3 major issues that are stumbling blocks...with Cap at the top of the list.

Florida is loaded with retired or seasonal Canadians too. I always thought FL deserved a team, maybe not two though.

My Kings' apparel has been getting plenty of use these past 6 months.

Columbus used to average over 18k a game for a while. That market can be salvaged if the team gets good management. If CBJ had Phoenix's recent success they'd likely have good attendance. Columbus could be a good money maker for the league in the future. I don't think the same can ever be said of Phoenix.
