i'm hoping there is at least a partial season but it sounds like if they don't agree by the end of the month they're cancelling the season. I hope I heard that wrong and it'd only be a chunk of games.
I keep hearing that "winter classic" is the cutoff. which would be roughly half a season. If they cant make it happen by that, then there isnt enough money left in the season to make it fiscally practical. I had hope yesterday, but none today. Pretty much like that since the lockout began.
