According to Pierre LeBrun(TSN), the Board of Governors meeting and vote is Wednesday in NYC. Players will then vote electronically on Thurs and Friday. Camps can open,after approval, with Sunday,Monday likely. He said lawyers for both sides are still working on the "Document" and that it will be posted for all players to see on a website. As far as a schedule goes, the NHL hopes to have it done Thurs-Friday and most likely it will be 48 games, beginning the 19th, but the NHL has not ruled out starting on the 15th for some games.


yup

I saw pierre leburn's tweet. That's good. His tweet that I started in the AM today, was thought Saturday was going to be the player vote, but that's good they decided to do a player vote and do it electronically, it will speed things up.

Plus some players are still overseas.

I read a article, Bobrousky, kovalchuk, and 3 others are still planning to play 1 more KHL game prior to coming back to USA.

I hope they told them NO, you need to be flying to US now.

but will see.

here are some new details coming out. Looks like the lawyers are just about finish putting all of this on paper.

Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie

Now that draft copy of CBA terms has been distributed to all 30 teams, there are all sorts of details of the deal now coming out


Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie

For example, the so-called Make Whole deferred payment of $300M to the players is payable in $100M instalments in Years 2, 3 and 4.


Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie

CBA is 10 yrs with mutual 8 yr opt-out but NHL has 1st option to terminate, no later than Sept. 1, 2019. NHLPA 2nd option, Sept. 15, 2019.

Personally I hope the NHL plays to half-empty buildings in the cities where they usually sell out (Montreal, Toronto, New York, Detroit, etc.), and to nealy empty buildings where they are normally half-empty. There needs to be some ramifications for a league and players association whose normal operating procedure is to cancel seasons or half-seasons in collective bargaining negotiations over and over again.

If fans (and sponsors) come running back like sheep, this process will never change.

I've attended 2-3 games per year and this year I will not, and I'll also call to cancel my NHL Center Ice package....though DirecTV will most likely offer it to me for free.

new update

Pierre LeBrun ‏@Real_ESPNLeBrun

No surprise, but NHL now solely focused on Jan 19 as season start date


Chris Johnston ‏@reporterchris

NHL training camps expected to open Sunday, according to Bill Daly.


looks like sunday is the day it begins.

this will be a very fast paced season. This will probably the only practices and preparation they will get.

expect 4 games a week for each team.

It's going to be a very fast paced.

The ones who get off to a great start will be in solid shape.

a lot of games are going to have playoff feels to them, especially with more rival games this year.

right, now what you can anticipate is teams that were scheduled to play on jan 19 those days actually are still good for those arenas. So those teams will probably play home first.

so alls they have to due is put east vs east team and west vs west.

heres a break down

Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie

Each team plays: 4 games vs. two Divisional opponents (8); 5 games vs. two divisional opponents (10); 3 games vs 10 Conference rivals (30).



so example

FLYERS will play 18 games vs the atlantic division ( NJ, NYR, PIT, NYI) we will play 8 games vs two of those clubs and 10 games vs the other 2 clubs which I have no clue, but if my guess flyers would play PIT and NJ more.

Then they will play 30 games against the Northeast and Southeast divison

I would imagine that NHL CI subs will get a letter from D* stating the details of the NHL CI package for the 2013 season. I would imagine that the package price will be pro-rated based upon the number of games (TBD). Would be nice, though, if the NHL would include online access to games with their NHL CI package, like the NBA does. It is fan-friendly for those of us who travel from time to time.

here are some new notes tomorrow NHL board of governers will vote on the new CBA, after tomorrow the NHL's side will be complete. They need I believe 16 votes or more to be considered approved by the NHL.

The league and NHLPA spent Tuesday continuing to hammer out a memorandum of understanding that will ultimately be voted on by their constituents. The owners will cast ballots in person at a Board of Governors meeting Wednesday afternoon in New York while the players are expected to vote electronically on Thursday and Friday.


The league is targeting a 48-game season beginning Jan. 19, leaving very little time for everyone involved with the sport to get organized. The schedule isn't expected to be released until after the Board of Governors ratifies the agreement.


so it looks like the new schedule would be released Wed night / Thursday. Looks like they will be able to release the schedule prior to the Players voting.

If they release the schedule tomorrow or Thursday, then theres a chance we see NHL CI details. However, not sure they will do that until after the players vote and its delievered. If the players complete there vote Thurs / Fri, then Friday night / Saturday the NHL actually can then lift all remaining lockout restrictions, and then release NHL CI info.

So I would look between Tomorrow thorough Sunday for NHL CI info.

According to the DirecTV web site CI page "Considering games will be missed prior to the lock-out being resolved, an adjusted price will be determined when NHL CENTER ICE becomes available for purchase."

It sure would be nice to have the NHL Game Center included, with the CI package. With the loss of CI subscribers they will have from the lock out, it may encourage some to stay and attract some new viewers.

Just watched CSN sports nite, they had a flyers update

Not officially, but they were all talking that flyers first game is expected to be.

Jan 19 Penguins @ Flyers 1pm Wells Fargo Center. It would have to be a matinee ( college Hockey Penn state vs Vermont) are playing at 7pm same building

Flyers originally were scheduled to play on that date, time, and building against Flames.

JAN 19 is probably going to be a 12 hr marathon of Hockey all day on TV.

not sure if NBC will be on the first game will have to see.

but usually Saturdays belong to HNIC they usually do a day game then 2 night games.

The Memorandum of Understanding between NHL and NHLPA is not expected to completed and signed off on by both sides until Saturday.
If all goes well and according to plan, training camps will open Sunday Jan. 13 and 48-game season would open on Sat Jan. 19
There is no business as usual in NHL - actual trades, signings etc - til MOU is signed on Saturday. Nothing "official" can happen til then. "

I also read where the NHL schedule be announced either late today or Thurs/Friday. More info may be possible after the BOG meeting today in NYC.

Here is something I been waiting to finally see

After months of waiting, the NHL will take an important step towards finally dropping the puck on the 2012-13 season today.

The NHL Board of Governors meets today in New York, where it is expected they will ratify a new collective bargaining agreement.


Watch live coverage of the Board of Governors news conference today at 4pm et/1pm pt on TSN and TSN.ca or listen live on TSN Radio.


http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=413131


Ok guys, looks like they are all arriving now as we speak, This shouldn't be too long. As of now 4pm looks like when they will have the press conference.

I believe 16 or more votes in favor is all that's needed for the NHL BOG to approve the new deal.

It's also expected once they do that, the schedule will be release - so expect that tonight. My guess between 5pm -8pm


I noticed my local sports network CSN philly is planning a special 1 hr show at 1030, they also mention and I'm not sure yet that other CSN's will be involve. I'm not sure if those networks are planning to do the same show, or they will just have reporters from those cities, while only doing the show on CSN philly, I can tell you in the past numerous times CSN philly would have CSN mid atlantic reporters on but the CSN mid atlantic wouldn't be showing that show.

After today, the only thing left to do is the players ratification which is set for tomorrow / Friday. 750 players are set to vote.

390 votes or higher are needed for the players side to officially approve the new deal, after that then we can finally say this CBA is officially signed and delivered.
