I'm sure we'll find that out within a day or two or three.

I have no idea how many games I will have out of my 10 game pack, and which dates the games will be.

It also means we won't get to see what happens when Parise visits Jersey. But we should get to see what happens when Suter shows up in Nashville
Ok. I predict the training camp starts on upcoming Wednesday and we'll see NHL hockey on 17th (Thu) or 18th (Fri) of January.

Again, told Mikael Granlund is 100% healthy, pulled last night "just in case." Will be at training camp whenever it starts #mnwild

I could see the first game being jan 15th....you can still bank on the Wild having a home game Sat Jan 19th since that is hockey day Minnesota.

It won't be against the penguins, conference only games is the rumor...Russo just said 100% that it's going to be conference only games.

The agreement is for a 10-year deal, with a mutual opt-out clause after eight. It includes a seven-year limit on player contract length — eight for players to re-sign with their same team – and a 35 percent year-to-year variance aimed at preventing back diving contracts.

lol, I think Parise and Suter knew what they were signing when they signed those obscenely long deals.

Good day, heard a ten year deal with mutual opt out after eight, sounds good to me.

Hopefully the Wild still get their Hockey Day home game.

The all in conference schedule should be pretty fun also. Familiarity breeds contempt and all that good stuff.

Did HF go 503 yet?

US wins the gold in World Juniors and a lockout deal reached all in the same weekend? Well played hopes and dreams.

So in conclusion: NHL stays locked out for the whole fall when I was jobless and schooless, but when I enter our mandatory military service now tomorrow, they begin the ******* season in a few weeks.

Otherwise, yay!

I know that feeling (not the military service part though). Could have stayed up for all the games this fall but now I'm going to miss majority of them.

I haven't read anything on eventual (hopeful?) re-alignment yet, has anyone? Obviously it wouldn't happen this year but in the following years is what I'm looking for...

I'd rather give LaPanta a 10 year deal than go through a lockout to stay in a division with Edmonton and Vancouver.

Two things:

First, and this may be a dumb question, but is there a trade deadline in an abbreviated season? If so, is it staying around the same time?

Second, I would like to stay in Edmonton's division now that the Aeros/Barons have got a little rivalry going.
