Again, thanks for keeping us all up to date on this.
I'm glad to see hockey back!
I'm not to interested in most of the details. I just want them back on the ice.
I suspect realignment wasn't an issue (it hasn't been part of any CBA in the past), so I'm wondering how long before the league comes up with one.
I hope it goes into effect next season -- Winnipeg in the SE needs to be changed. Still hoping Detroit will move 'east', but not sure if it will based on the previous realignment and comments from the league.
not official, but during the CBA 1 reporter heard Winnipeg and Columbus will swap
trying to ruin my day?
Looks like January 15th is the day they will start back up. Here is the schedule from the NHL web site.
That was the original 2012-13 schedule. I'm not sure that schedule is going to be the one used for the shortened season.
no, they will be a new season issued.
East vs East teams only West vs West teams only.
Season will start either Jan 15 for a 50 jan 19 for a 48 game schedule.
Depends how fast, they get all the players back.
Also they have to look at logisitics, and see what time buildings have openings with other events, NBA, shows, concerts, etc.
They are doing that as we speak.
Plus the owners / board of governers have to vote on the new CBA and players have to ratify. But all of that will be completed with in next few days.
here are some new tweets of course NHL wants to get 50 /52 in
Most interesting Tweet I've read so far concerning the CBA:
Was watching CSN, they were saying in there video that all parites will be able to vote / ratify the deal by electronic vote, which would expedite the process.
Also training camps could open Thursday / Friday
right now both sides are sleeping, they worked 16 hrs straight and been sleeping around 8am, so they probably will use the night to start on the logisitics side of things.
Got to get a lot of players back from Europe/Russia too. Ovechkin, Malkin and Gonchar have been killing it in the KHL.
Thanks for keeping us all up to date on the lockout la2philly.
your welcome, still not over yet.
I'll be posting new info when the voting will be for the owners / board of governers.
Also when the players have to ratify the deal.
A season has to be created, logistics, etc.
There is a lot to do, plus arenas have to make sure they have enough staff hired in NHL cities as aswell as both NHL / NBA buildings.
Here are 2 new tweets, looks like some of the insighters have waken up from there long overdue sleep
As I find out more, I'll keep em coming. Were gonna talk about nuttin until nuttin's enough :lol:
Aaron Ward fromer NHL defenseman now reporter for TSN, who has been on this since September has put tweeted this.
Tim Pannachio a reporter from CSN philly, who also has been on this since September, will also have news at 7pm.
CSN Philadelphia will be airing a special 1 hr show. Tim, will be on, Al morganti will also be on. I'm sure new info is going to come out and I'll post that in here once I get it.
I realize not many on DBS have CSN philly, but I'm fortanute to have it and will post what I can. If CSN puts anything on there website of this special 1 hr show, i'll post links and video.
here's another, so looks like both sides got sleep and are back tonight and working this is good, speeds up process.
so finally there getting all of this set for the lawyers, court, etc. All of us will be very happy once this deal is officially signed off on both sides, then the NHL can be open for business officially.
While they are doing that, Teams, are getting ready personal, ice, conessions, stock,
this is going to be a very busy week, from a coordinating staindpoint.
The NHL is trying to move as fast as possible to get training camp open fast, so they can try and squeeze possibly a 52 game schedule.
John Shannon has some very good insight. He used to in charge of programming at the NHL Network (during his reign, we had both games of HNIC, pre-, between- and post-shows).
And from around 6pm eastern -
So they are/were back at it already.
As la24philly said, there is a lot to be done before the first puck is actually dropped.
I watched, the flyers 1 hr special was hoping for newer news, but they were just saying the same stuff that's been reported all day.
But it was a nice special, the kind of reconciled and gave an update to the flyers, roster, trades, free agents, line combinations, what to expect, who to use the 2 contract buyouts on, etc.
so was nice.
nothing real new in twitter world, but will keep em coming as they come out.
Would have been nice if the NHLN or NBCSN had some coverage.
Thanks to those updating on the lockout...esp. la24philly...objective and concise updates.
I am a former Dallas Stars season ticket holder. Last week when Fox Soccer Channel was included in Choice Xtra, I changed my programming package from Choice Ultimate. The only channel that I lost that had any interest to me was NHLN. I decided that saving $6/mo. was more important than dealing with the NHL again.
I have switched my primary allegiance to my wallet and to the English Premier League.
I loved the NHL but have had enough of Bettman and greed...from both sides.
Forbes does an annual report of professional sports. The Hockey version was in Nov 2012.
One of the reason the 'greedy' league wanted to get better control of the % of HRR they share with the players.
