    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.

    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

    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


    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.

    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.

    A bit of sad news today. Katie Moore, wife of Sharks center Dominic Moore, died yesterday after a 9-month battle with liver cancer. Not sure her age, but he is 32.

    This from Bob McKenzie-TSN:.

    "NHLPA ratification vote tentatively set for Thurs/Fri, with entire process hopefully complete by Saturday.
    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

    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.
