Lockout Watch 2012

Some talk in the NHL News thread, but this is own-thread-worthy.

NHL sends NHLPA "Notice of Termination" of CBA effective Sept. 15, 2012. Also hearing from GM's that NHL teams are canceling rookie camps.
We all know Walsh is full of **** sometimes, but I don't think he'd just flat-out lie about this...

I'm gonna be honest, with all the **** we as fans have put up with lately, I don't think my fragile self could take another lockout.

League filed. NHLPA notified their players.

I have heard nothing to confirm that rookie camps are "canceled". That just seems... dumb.

At this point I'm almost expecting another lockout. I haven't seen any progress at all being made towards re-newing the CBA.

But at least everyone's been sticking their heads in the sand and pretending it's not going to happen! That's progress, right? ...right?

Anybody know what the sticking points are? The cap has damn near doubled in 7 years time, so...

Ken Campbell on the CBA termination notice: "That would leave both sides less than three months to hammer out an agreement in which the owners will be looking to likely reduce the players' share of hockey related revenues and place limits on long-term contracts. The one thing that has been absent from the dynamic compared to 2004 is rhetoric from either side. (Although Chicago Blackhawks chairman Rocky Wirtz recently reiterated that the Blackhawks continue to lose money despite close to 200 straight sellouts and alluded to, 'a challenging business model.')"

I'm guessing player salaries nearly doubling in 7 years is killing some of the smaller market teams and/or the larger teams are not happy about the revenue sharing.

NHL has a TON of leverage here...look at those revenues, the amount of success the league has had, new NBC deal, WC revenues...they are going to want some of that money back.

Great, we finally get to a point where we have good prospects coming in and the NHL and NHLPA are looking to have another pissing match.

Were still recovering from the last one. We can't deal with this.

Someone post that gif. It's relevant.

I believe that is precisely the biggest sticking point. NHL is going to ask for a rollback.

i also have a player side source that does indeed say that discipline is an issue for the NHLPA.

There's gonna be a lockout. Last time I changed seats at the Xcel was before the 2004-05 season. We know how that turned out. Well, guess who relocated their seats for next year? Lockout incoming!

Yep, same here. I've already resigned myself to the fact that the season will not start on time this fall.

Well I would love to see a salary rollback exchanged for an independent disciplinary commission.

No, not that one. The one I was thinking of was basically the opposite of the "deal with it" meme: "Cant deal with it".

You need to just stop changing anything, period. And stop offering to change your avatar is X event happens. Whenever you offer that, X event is assured to NOT happen.

Fine. If the NHL has a lockout, I'll sport a Bettman avatar for a week.

We really do need the XXX section for posters.

I think we'll be ending up with a shortened pre-season, but still a season. That's the optimistic me, though.

Hey, I figured the few that would get it would sit back quietly and not call me out..

But to stay on topic, I really don't see teams playing any less than 82 games this season. Could be wishful thinking, but I doubt it.

I thought it was pretty funny.

The league can't make money if they don't play any games. Don't see why they would have another lockout when they are hitting record popularity.

I wonder how much Fargo Force season tickets are. Been to a couple of games at Urban Plains. Really nice little building.

Gotta get my hockey fix somehow.
