    basically, but this is the final issue, every issue being reported has been resolved.

    the year 2 cap is the final hurtle.

    Players originally wanted 70 then came down to 65 then 63.

    NHL finally came up, but PA said not good enough so that leads to belive

    that its probably around 61 62 or 62.5.

    once the mediator bridges that gap, the deal will be set.

    here is a new update just came in off the press and these 2 I follow a lot and if this guy is saying it, now I can believe the deal is just about done.


    ok, that is big the PA has agreed to come down on year 2 cap. I been mentioning that they came down from 65 to 63, it is actually 64.3 - so forgive me, I was off by 1.3

    lastly tim pannachio from CSN is now tweeting deal is to be set on Monday or late sunday.

    Like I anticipated from previous post earlier today. were just to close to not get this deal done, based off of the agreements being made on the final issues.

    so now the final battle the pa wanted nhl to come up in year 2 from 60 m and they agreed to do so, but it wasn't enough for the PA they want them to come up more, don't know what they came up to.

    I predidcted NHL is between the 61-62.5 range PA came down they are at 64.3m

    so at worst the gap is 2.8m that is all that is left to iron out by the mediator

    new update :

    just came in


    In my previous post, I wasn't sure how much the NHL came up I guessed between 61-62.5 well, I think I should be a fortune teller lol or see a shrink. the number is 62.5

    so 64.3 is where the PA is NHL is 62.5 so do the math, 1.8 Is the gap.

    the mediator is just about closing in on victory

    Congrats to Team USA, for winning the World Jr. Championship. At least we got to see that tournament.

    But, I still miss the NHL and want it to return SOON.

    So... straight into the playoffs? Or will they just raffle off the cup as a door prize?

    *IF* they get it done this week, they are looking at a 48-52 game season. Similar to the last partial-season lockout.

    it will be a 48 game schedule camps would open Saturday jan 12

    then season starts Saturday jan 19

    playoffs will end late june.

    as far as NHL CI, not sure what the pricing will be. I'm trying to remember what the price in January is usually. for those who have NHL CI on auto, watch your bill.

    this just in they are still meeting, this probably will continue late, maybe even overnight hours. Very good.



    guys, when this gets done officially, we all need to thank scot beckenbaugh, the mediator who from last Thursday on till now a mediator has had these 2 sides meet everyday, and even when things were breaking down, this guy was able to finally get these 2 sides and a deal is imminent. this guy was on the mediating in 2004 / 05. I just wish he was on from the beginning.

    I wish they would, but I bet they won't. There are too many RSNs that this would detract revenue from.

    I'm hoping for an extended preview AND a discount from the normal January-to-end-of-season price, but I'm betting on a standard price being what they'll offer. Let's face it, the only folks who offer CI are the die hards who will probably buy it anyway.

    Which is exactly why I canceled the auto renewal on Friday. From my perspective, the sense of urgency should have been felt in September and October to get this deal done. Any other delays in my opinion show a contempt on the part of both sides for the fans. They only way I can fight back and tell them how much this ticked me off is to pull revenue out of their pockets in the same way they pulled entertainment from my living room.

    I've made a pact with myself not to give the NHL any money this season even if they play: no CI and no tickets purchased. And I won't be purchasing any merchandise, either.

    the last issue I was chatting about yesterday was that year 2 cap, nhl came up to 62.5 pa was at 64.3 so 1.8 was the difference. The NHL owners, finally came up to 64.3 to close that 1.8 gap. That was the final hurtle, at 4am, the agreement was made at around 5am.


    here is a highlight of what to expect.


    this is a new 10 year CBA agreements: with a 8 year opt out. thorough 2021-2022 season

    HRR 50% for all 10 years

    300m make whole provision for reduced player contracts

    cap this year 70.2 2013/14 64.3 I don't have details on the remaining years at this time.

    contract lengths maximum 7 years 8 years if you resign with your team.

    so no more 10 year or 17 year contracts, even though 7 or 8 years is long its a lot better then 10 - 17 year contracts we been seeing.

    not sure if the ones currently under those contracts are granfathered in or they have to re do.

    salary vairablity maximum 35% year to year ( remember when I was talking about variance NHL at 10 PA at 15) NHL actually came up to 30 this past weekend, and finally with this new agreement have came up to 35.


    still a lot more to go, as the day goes on scheduling, rosters, pricing, etc.

    I can tell you teams are now taking orders.

    I'm a flyers fan and actually had 800 bucks on hold in my flyers account, and have 2 10 game plans.


    season will be 50 games or 48 depending how fast they get it all up and running.

    if they start Jan 15 it will be a 50 game season

    if they start Jan 19 it will be a 48 game season

    This just coming in over the next 2 summers teams will have 1 each summer amnesty buyout.

    use this link to see which players you think should be gone from your team.

    remember after this short season the cap drops from 70.2 to 64.3 that's a big drop
