I unerstand that but that's why I said monkeys; morons are losing $$

Edit: it's their fault; they cry poor and then hand out ridiculous contracts

I know its only Eklund but he says very close to a deal. Most of the time he BSs but he does have a good track record when he puts an E5 on it....which is the case here. I hope he is right. Owners made a concession on next years cap today.

this never happens. they'll complain, they swear they're done with the team but the reality is that fans would rather suffer through a bad franchise and be entertained so that they can say they were there through all the bad than to actually take their money away and force the team to improve.

look at almost any sport and pathetic franchises. fans won't give up something they enjoy to enact change.

Heard owners agreed to cap of 65m(which is what players wanted). Looks promising if owners are giving players something.

If they did agree to 65 that would be huge.....also would suggest no buyouts.

not sure why in the hell the owners thought the players would settle for a big dip in the cap. takes too much money off the table for them.

@NHL: The NHL and NHLPA have reached a tentative agreement on the framework of a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. http://t.co/p7emJGgQ

And we're back. Let's go Devils.

Just get me to the playoffs nucks...live for that ****.

Not that I've looked too hard to find out, but does anyone know what the scheduling will be like? If the Avs don't host Vancouver I'm going to be quite sad...

Rumor is 50 games. 20 divisional games and 30 conference games.

So you are likely to see Avs and Canucks a few times.
