tsn.ca has just put this up on its website.
stay tuned for future updates, Schedule, NHL center ice, etc all will becoming this week. the Board of Governers are expected to vote Wednesday, players will need to ratify it, I'm guessing Thursday / Friday, if they do it quickly maybe Wednesday night.
As mention in the quote above the goal is to have training camps open between SAT - MON
This sounds accurate. Local paper(Denver Post) reporting most of the Avs will be in town on Tuesday with camp starting on Saturday. 1st game may be the 19th(Saturday). Teams have to wait until "ratification" of agreement before negotiating with any free agents(including restricted free agents). That may not happen until Wed., so there will be a flurry of signings on Thurs and Friday.....
here is a list of free agents, as it was on sept 16 the 1st day of lockout.
this just in from dreger
so players can go to there teams city and be with in driving distance of the training camp facilities, but still can't use them, or have any contact until the deal is officially signed and then the lockout restrictions will be lifted.
you guys will have to monitor your team's outlook as we move along.
I'll be reporting on how the flyers will be implanting their schedule.
this is from CSN remember as I said, teams have to create a schedule and that comes with moving dates around with available dates at arenas.
from the flyers standpoint here is what the flyers are planning with there home games, your teams are probably doing the same thing, coordinating.
well we know they won't be playing Calgary, it would have to be an east team. But NHL might use that date, time and building since it was set to be used for flyers. Plus it actually is set for doubleheader hockey
actually it looks like players are allowed to be at the practice facility.
I got some new photos of players skating at practice.
Nodl and bourcher actually play for Carolina, and will join them when there camp opens, they just live up here and getting some workouts in.
Let's Play Hockey!
were getting there, I'm pumped up to man. Can't wait for jan 19, I'll be fully prepared.
NHL CI, GCL, FOOD, beer, etc
there will be 15 games on all day can't wait.
as a side treat, Phantoms will be on TCN on Saturday vs Hershey.
but gotta continue to follow the updates. The biggest one will happen wed / Thursday. When this CBA gets ratified, then I'll be really happy.
guys, I started a NHL chatroom on paltalk, free download,
its in the sports and American football category, since they don't have a hockey section, just the 3 other sports, so I list it there so it can be reconized.
free to use if anyone wants to yap about it during games.
Looks like the player ratification is set for Saturday, which means camps likely to open sun or MON
Thanks, la24philly, for keeping us up to date.
Camps open Sunday or Monday and then the season on Saturday?
There are a number of players who said they need two weeks of practice. I can't see 15 games on the 19th if they start camp that late.
I want to see the new schedule, but I most likely am not going to renew CI this year. Too short and I've gone this long (113 days) w/o the NHL; I can get by on my RSNs, NBCSN and weekend NBC games.
As has been stated by many before...We can hold a national election, and get every vote done in 1 day, yet it takes "several days" to get less than 1,000 players to vote and get counted!...:lol: Also, is there ANY doubt about the outcome?
Can't speak for other teams, but locally the Avalanche's typical "camp" lasts about 4 days, then they have an inter-squad game, then play there 1st pre-season game. Just figure the early games this season are like the pre-season only they will count. I don't think thats so bad. Players won't be in "game shape" but should be in OK shape to get thru this. If not To Bad So Sad for them! They have had a lot of time on their hands....
We have many months to consider our options prior to voting. You'd ask the players to consider the long term deal on the table and vote on it all in one day?
Absolutely...They have had "Their Experts" negotiate all the details.
Whats to think about.....
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.
For the 2012-2013 season, camps were to start on September 16 with pre-season games starting around the 23rd and the first game on Oct 11. So almost 4 weeks of on-ice time before the season was to start.
Some of the players have been involved in negotiations and haven't seen any ice time since last season. Of course some have been playing in the AHL or in Europe and should be ready to go.
I'd hate to see any injuries to a player who wasn't ready.
Tell them to all vote in Chicago, where they can vote early and vote often! !rolling
I don't wish an injury on any player(except..Bertuzzi for his hit on Steve Moore in 2004, but that is another story..) and hope all get thru this OK, but not really any sympathy for either side on this.
Moving on, this 48 game season could be VERY exciting, once we get over the bitterness of the lockout. Heard several players that were involved in the 94-95 season(lockout/shortened), that the games that season were that much more intense because you couldn't afford to not play hard everynight and "make up" for a poor effort the next game. Much fewer "next games" this year. In other words, more fun for the players, better viewing for us....
Just trying to get positive about the cards that are dealt for us....
The only player deserving of a career-ending injury, and I pray to the Dark Lords for it, is Raffi Torres of the Coyotes. 'Nuff said about that scum-sucking piece of human debris.
Common sense here. This is important to both sides. The responsible and adult approach is to know what you are voting in favor of before voting.
Why? 51% of Americans didn't in November. !rolling!rolling!rolling
