    I called a few weeks back to confirm that i would not be charged for CI until the season actually started. Negotiations have to take place after an agreement is worked out on how to price out what we'll end up missing. My new concern is the talk of the owners floating using Replacement players/Scrubs. The last thing i want is to get a bill to watch nobody's.

    Is there any downside to canceling the automatic renewal? This would have been my first renewal season, so I'm not sure. Do renewers get a better price than new subscribers typically?

    I agree wholeheartedly about not wanting to watch scrubs by the way. Or at least I agree insofar as I don't want to pay the NHL a cent to watch those scrubs. It could be kind of entertaining, really, to watch if it was free. Kind of like the urge to stare at the mangled wreckage along the highway....

    Bettman and Daley visited the Fehrs Friday at the NHLPA offices. Some phone calls this weekend and maybe some more meetings this week. I still think before we know it, the entire season will be gone.

    on the way into work on my local radio 94 wip, the morning show

    al morganti and keith jones are hearing from thers source of the lockout ending in 24-48 hrs.

    Not sure how true but will see.

    one thing that happened yesterday and today.

    the flyers put the ice down in wells fargo.

    I think they did it just to be ready when the season starts, but also the sixers play there first pre home game on monday and want to be ready.

    but here is a pic of the new ice

    Am I the only one who is a teeny tiny bit optimistic here? I mean, unlike the last two lockouts it seems as if they are at least in the same chapter, if not on the same page. Both are talking about 50-50 splits, they just have to figure out how to get there.

    Sounds like all they really have to do is figure out how to get to 50-50 and still honor all the current contracts, might be easier said then done.

    Not easy...but if that is the main thing they have to figure out, they should be able to find a way.

    Not optimistic at all with Donald Fehr the players' negotiator. Look at your history when he was head of the MLB players union: he was chief during a two-day strike in 1985, the 32-day lockout five years later, and the 94 strike that wiped out the World Series and would have continued through 95 if the National Labor Relations Board hadn't intervened. He's combative, has to get his way, and is leading the players down a path they won't find their way back from.

    Prediction: Next to go: the Outdoor Classic. And if it's canceled, the season is too.

    ...and the NHL found a way to cancel an entire hockey season six years ago WITHOUT Donald Fehr's involvement!

    When Mr. Fehr objected to the realignment back in January, I started thinking this wasn't going to be a painless CBA. The PA has no say in team locations and in all the past moves/realignments, they were silent.

    According to a profile in today's NY Times, Fehr has always tried to collect all that he can for his union players. That's admirable. And we know that at some point this is going to end with an agreement where he and the union will get some of what they want.

    But how many fans will be PO'd along the way by having no league to watch? And how will this diminish even further (if possible!) the status of the sport in the eyes of the U.S. media, who already shove it below UFC?

    Your right, I think it is going to be a replay of the last time, we went through this. After it is settled attendance will take a big drop. These greedy owners and players will never learn.

    guys, at this point, I think we won't have NHL hockey this year.

    In other news

    the NY islanders will be relocating after their lease expires 2014-15 at the nassau colliseum.

    They will be moved to brooklyn, at the new barclays center.

    Personally i don't think theres enough seats 16,000 but atleast for now thats how it will work.

    Not sure if they can put more seats in. But hockey usually around 18 -20k seats.

    One thing is nice about the new brooklyn building, 11 subway trains all go to the arena and the Long island rail.

    news conference today 1pm.

    So the Stink-landers move their circus tent west to Brooklyn. The problem is, Wang and Snow are coming with them.
