European Premiere 2012/2013

I know these European games aren't that well liked among many US/Canadian fans, but I was wondering if anyone has heard anything yet, maybe possible teams or cities?

Two seasons ago the teams and venues were announced in january, last year a bit later with the problems with possible games in Russia, but this season I haven't really heard anything yet.

I'm starting to think that maybe it won't happen next season, due to the delay of the 2012/2013 schedule (because of the failed re-alignment).

I did find two articles on some blog, looks mostly like speculation though: Article 1 and Article 2

I expect no announcement on this until the CBA is done.

CBA expires 9/15.

Premiere games are usually announced in June or earlier (so those fans that want to attend can make plans).

Now, it could be that with a potential lockout, there won't be any this year. (Or you should get refundable tickets and deposits.)

If it's not extended by then, we have bigger problems than the Euro Premiere.

Think it's probably likely that there are no Euro games this year due to the uncertainty.

During today's NHL Hour, Bettman indicated this is being worked on.

The only thing we know is that the Rangers will be in it until the Garden is completely renovated.
