If they don't come to an agreement....

It's their own death warrant they're signing.

I am not too optimistic about an agreement at this point. I think Bettman will in fact cancel the season after next friday if no deal is in place. It would be sad to see Hockey go thru a 2nd canceled season within 7 years.

yes, salaries have to come down. Dont pay the players when these current contracts run out. By putting a cap at 50% or 57% or whatever, all thats doing is protecting the owners from themselves. Pay them 40% and pocket some cash. You will lose 60 games but you could do it that way.

I don't care.

I don't see any pucks being dropped this year, at least not in Raleigh. Sad. I was looking forward to seeing the Staal brothers playing. Maybe next year??

I would like to see a new commissoner. This is his 3rd lockout in his tenure as commissioner. The NHL lost a full season last time. It's going to lose half if not a full season. As fan's of hockey. We will be lucky. If it start's by January.
It hurt's small market team's when their is no hockey.
I blame both side's. I feel a 50/50 deal is fair. The owner's just like the player''s are in it for the money.

I'm not confident an agreement will happen anytime soon. I think this season is a total bust. Definitely not considering season tickets for the future.

Then why did the owners sign this deal last time? They gave 57%...no one stole it from them. Anyhow, I agree it should come down but there has to be some middle ground. It shouldn't be all or nothing for either side.

Maybe all the players can go back to their respected countries and we can have a world cup game every year. This way the players don't have to worry about the NHL owners anymore. The Canadian people will be happy because the cup will be in their country forever.

Seems like the smaller market teams are driving this lockout......sad.
