the 8am voting time has ended, were waiting for results. so will know very soon. I believe right now the players got enough votes to approve the CBA, waiting on results and %. as long as they have enough to approve it, the last step is Fehr signing the MOU - the memorandum of understanding. Gary bettman had to sign this when the owners voted on Wednesday. Once Fehr signs off on this, the CBA will officially be in signed and delivered, NHL will be open for business - expect at that point the schedule to pop up. I said between 9am-12pm this AM, so lets hope.
