I'm seriously surprised it got done but uber-excited.  I don't know what I would've done once the Football season ended.


It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

I hope they are staying away from the thank you fans crap. Want to do something for the people you've let down and fans? Give them a freaking paycheque for all the months they've been missing, because  you two couldn't decide how to split 3,3 billion $$$$$$$$$  for months and months.

 

Yes, I am happy we're going to have a season but sour taste is sour taste. I think a lot of credit should go to Beckenbough, one heck of a mediator.

 

Give something back and make Centerice free at leas t till the playoffs.

NHL sent out memo to teams tonight saying Jan 19 puck drop is most probable, however if ratification process goes fast, Jan 15 still in play

 
 
 
We have the Blues on NBC scheduled for the 20th. Won't be surprised if that gets pushed to the 19th to begin the season, or they could have us against the Blackhawks on 19th and Blues game stays on the 20th. Would be rough start if so.

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

Agreed. They can f uck themselves if they think I'm spending a dime on anything (tickets, merchandise, Center Ice, etc).

I'll still be on LGW to discuss the game and the like. It isn't fair for me to take my anger with this pathetic excuse for a sports league out on a website that isn't affiliated with it. I still love the game of hockey as much as ever, but the NHL can go to hell. I'm not buying a damn thing from them.

I can't wait for the sight of empty arenas.

Hoping the Vancouver tickets aren't so damn high this season when the Wings come to town.

Lost in the shuffle:

 

 

 

Discipline

All on-ice incidents will go directly to NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan for review. After that, an appeal will go directly to commissioner Gary Bettman.

However, a neutral third party can be consulted on suspensions of six games or more at this point. This gives players additional security in that everything will be handled fairly without bias.

If you go through a former player, a commissioner, a neutral party and are still found guilty, you probably did something wrong.

The playoffs aren't on Center Ice anymore.  The NBC Sports networks cover all the games now.  DirecTV has already stated that they will adjust the price accordingly based on if/when the deal got done.  I expect a prorated bill around $85-$100 for the season.

1) Sochi 2014 was not finalized.

2) Expanded rosters to begin with are a distinct possibility, with teams are only inviting about half as many players as usual.

I thought I saw somewhere that Center ice would be free. Was that just a false rumor?

I have been kind of wary about how I would feel about the season once started, and watching that first half of the video made me feel even more upset at the fact that they couldn't come to an agreement sooner, then the second half came and I nearly jumped out of my seat. I just remembered why I love hockey so much and can't wait for hockey again... LETS GO WINGS!!

 

EDIT: LOVED the huge hit by White at the end!

OK, a little review of the critical path: NHL B of G will have CBA ratification vote this afternoon. Simple majority (16) req'd for approval                    

 

 

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.

This was funny.  "The KHL is SO much better.  Did you see that backcheck by Semin?"


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.
