So what. Bettman is still there. Everything is basically the same with a band-aid slapped on top. Even the Sochi Olympics debacle hasn't even been taken care of. And I see nothing about realignment. 

 

I'm with the movement of fans that are boycotting game #1.

i think it's more likely that the gamecenter will be free. not sure how the center ice thing would work with all the different cable providers

 

I tend to agree - though i hope it would extend to the Xbox and PS3 apps as well. It would wind up being a bit of a win-win. You sign up so they have info about you but don't charge you this year whilst still being made to look like they are giving back to the Fans. It's a PR winner.

Carlo has a shoulder injury he apparently sustained from a hit from Brunner.

I stopped following it last night because they said thats how it works.  All night with 'no' or 'little' progress and then, bam, deal done.

 

I was confident they would get it done, but I'm still speechless.

 

Orgasmic.

Just a thought I had: I know that this is nearly impossible to get organized, but what if no fans showed up to the first home game for every team? It would get everyone's attention that the fans are the real bosses.

Well, life goes on the same for me here, unless Versus/NBC picks up a lot of Wings games, or someone re-establishes a stream like Drum's.   I have tickets to local hockey, thinking I might see a Wing or two (like Nyquist) in March here, but now that isn't happening.  I really don't expect "free" Center Ice here, since they won't even add NHL Network to our local cable -- since "no one" wants to see hockey here, according to Time Warner Cable.  :sleepy:

 

So.  Great news for all of you in Detroit who still plan to go to games, and better news for those local folks in Motown who have their jobs back, as well. 

 

No one's excited to see Tootoo?  ;)

People have been talking about this they were discussing it on TSN but unless people picket arenas some people will show up. In reality it won't happen... though it will happen in Nashville and Phoenix even without a lockout :)

I'd boycott some games if they cancelled 2012-13 entirely. I'm too big of a puckhead to boycott a shortened sked though.

Is Carlo Colaiacovo the most injury-prone player in NHL history?

If season is 48 games, expect teams will play 3 games outside division and unbalanced within: 4 games vs. two teams, 5 games vs. two teams

 

 

Pushed for now; PA consents RT "@DunkTheRunk: Eric didn't hear about realignment. what's happening with that? Does it go to a vote by PA?

 

 

those asking, Bill Daly confirmed you CANT use the compliance buyouts on players who have LTIR status, such as Chris Pronger.

 

 

#NHLPA is drafting a 30 page memorandum of understanding detailing main points of deal for players to review before voting

 

 

The #NHL would like to have a schedule out by Thursday or Friday at the latest. Don't forget they've got a lot of work to do to sell tix.

Finally the puck can drop once again! Now the NHL just needs to offer NHL center ice for free for this shorten season!

I had that epiphany this morning about Quincey.

Switch to DirecTV.  You'll thank me later.

 

I'm excited to see Brunner and Tootoo.  And some young guns to carry some weight.

Wasn't everyone doing the exact opposite to this when they dropped a ton of channels because they refused to pay for them?

I think Tootoo was a horrible signing.  He's not tough, he's just annoying and takes horrible penalties at inopportune times.  Not to mention, who knows what his personal situation is.

well that pretty much confirms my suspicions that center ice won't be free but nhl gamecenter most likely will be

His personal situation is much better, i think he has now been sober for 2 years so his attitude has turned around. I think he knows where he stands that the Wings offered what you could liken to a lifeline and he will have to compete for his spot.
