    I'm not sure what constitutes a clear majority for the NHLPA, but there are a total of 740 members. If we assume majority is 50% +1, then they may only need 341 votes 'for'. Logistically, this could happen before Sunday.

    Yes - but why are they waiting to start???? "The players aren't expected to start their own ratification vote until Friday. "
