Toronto and Minnesota were in playoff spots. Pittsburgh was not.

EDIT: Meant Phoenix not Pittsburgh

To me, "close" means it gets done before Monday.

Talks stalled due to the PA recieving an additional pepperoni on their half.

They weren't. They merely had long marathon sessions that in the end went nowhere. There's actually progress being made this time.

2005 was wishful thinking and in that case, if they were "close" in that they had their system figured out, but couldn't nail the details, they were so ridiculously late in the game that it didn't matter anyway. all they were doing was setting the framework for the summer.

no one ever really presented a realistic scenario to play out of around the time of the cancellation.

14 of the 16 teams that made the playoffs were already in playoff position.

Toronto and Minnesota fell off a cliff, everyone else stayed where they were.

Fehr invokes disclaimer when he realizes that the owners lied and a 50/50 split meant extra cheese on the owner's half.

But then they argued whether or not pepperoni is considered sausage, which is capped at 8 slices of sausage per slice of pizza.

The last time the salary cap was the main issue and the NHL wasn't gonna agree until the PA gave them one so I'm not sure they were even close the last time.

Youre asking the wrong question.

It should be "Was there a lot of change in the standings last season from around the 32-34 game mark to the end of the season?"

Thats the range we would be looking at here. Big difference too.

No, it's usually just three or four games involving Canadian teams. When there were six Canadian teams, it was usually 3 all-Canadian teams and they were not all east-west games. Last year, it was four games: MON vs. TOR, EDM vs. OTT, VAN vs. CAL, and WIN vs. PIT. However, a better comparison for this year's situation was the season where the Northwest and Northeast divisions did not play each other. In that year, Hockey Day in Canada featured, if I remember correctly, EDM vs. CAL, OTT vs. MON, VAN vs. COL, and TOR vs. DET.

So, this year, they would likely do two eastern all-Canadian games, a western all-Canadian game, and a game with a western Canadian team playing an American team.

Just to be extra nice, I think your username is pretty creative as well.

Feels nice to compliment someone during this stressful time.

The league and players' union traded a flurry of proposals and
letters Tuesday night, but could never agree on a cap. The
players proposed $49 million per team; the owners said $42.5
million. But a series of conditions and fine print in both
proposals made the offers further apart than just $6.5 million
per team.

Worst thing about a shortened season is it probably isn't enough time to see the Leafs implode.

A guy in the hockey pool I was in last season named his team "Tyutin in the Stall".

Keeping on topic...the light is seemingly getting awfully bright at the end of the tunnel.

Nice graphic ...The NHL did not say lets play hockey here..The "Franchisee"..offered The NHL, a sweet deal to bring another, Professional hockey team to south Florida... People often blame the NHL for their forays into uncharted areas...When the "Franchisee" is the biggest culprit...
