now lets see what impact this has on attendance...
oh, I will think it will have a major impact. cramming more games in, when the casual fan has a hard time coming on weeknights anyway....
and the people who just have made other plans, are now going to college basketball or going on vacations, etc and go....eh....next season.
and there are the sth who cancelled, got their $ back, and will just go.....eh, next season, this just isn't worth it.
I am freaking pumped. I've pretty much avoided this site and all hockey sites all non season so far but I'm back for the ride now. Ready to spend some of my preds bucks too! From all accounts, this new CBA is very favorable to small market teams like ours. Great news!
I'm as happy as anyone, but maybe because I followed negotiations fairly closely, I can't bring myself to be all positive right now. If it wasn't for this selfish, stupid sons of b******, we could have had a full season. There was no reason to lose almost half the games. None.
Thrilled it's back, and I'll be back supporting the Preds for sure, but I'm not all roses and rainbows today. Not forgiving Fehr, Jacobs, Campoli, and the other idiots responsible for this just because they pulled themselves out of a hole they created.
That said....Go Preds!

Have to ask, when do the buyouts start? I would be curious about signing Vinny LeC and a boughtout defenseman.
Vinny: 64GP, 22G, 27A.
Cap exempt buyouts won't be until next summer. Not sure if there will be a buyout period in the next week but I suspect there won't be, or if there is not many teams would use it because it would still count against the cap
