I would hate to see the NHL locked out until December, but it's looking more and more like there will be one. Just how long is the question...

If we do happen to miss 2 months of the season, we're going to miss some key games.

-Half the games against the Red Wings, Home and Away :(

-Sami Salo's return home to Roger's Arena :(

-The always exciting Canucks vs Penguins matchup, this time likely without Luongo :(

-Having the Habs come into Rogers arena and having head to head fans vs fans :(

-The return of the Hawks, namely Duncan Keith to Rogers Arena :sadno:

-And potentially the annual Eastern road swing


I really am praying it doesn't go on this long, cause those are some exciting games to miss out on. Don't wanna depress anyone, just looking at what we could potentially be missing out.

Come on NHL, don't embarrass yourself again! Get this thing done! :frantic:

If the lockout went that long, the league would probably re-do their schedule like they did in 1995.

I don't think it will be fair to some teams if the schedule isn't changed, they might play good teams more and bad teams less.

IMO there should be a rescheduling no matter how long the lockout is.

It`s tough to just reschedule though when it`s uncertain how long the lockout will go.

There`s alot of things that go into planning a season that take a long time to workout. Like arena availability, hotel bookings, flights, balancing East Vs West matchups etc.

Regardless of whether there is a lockout or not, I think we have to take the current schedule with a grain of salt.

If there is a shortened season, they would look to abbreviate the schedule to ensure a somewhat balanced schedule. You can't just chop off the schedule to some magic date. You would wind up with some teams playing more games than other teams and many teams playing more home games vs away games (or vice versa).

Also... I believe realignment will be included in the new CBA. A realigned league would mean a realigned schedule.

So I don't think the current schedule will be the schedule we see, no matter when the season starts.

They did it in 1995, they can do it in 2013. It only took them seven days to resume that season upon the conclusion of the lockout.

Even if arenas are busier today, they would almost certainly reschedule if the lockout went for two months into the season.

Oh sweet hopefully I can get a couple of tickets to boo Keith in person. I've never been part of a game where a guy gets booed before since it doesn't seem like something we do over here.

You can bet the NHL schedule makers have a contingency plan. I'm sure there is a 60 game schedule already complete and ready to go in case of a lockout.

The last time there was a lockout, many players still got paid because of their contrtacts.
Does anyone know if todays contracts are structured so that a player does not get paid during a stoppage?

The owners sure screwed themselves nicely with all the "we want to get rid of these stupidly long contracts" talk by throwing out a bunch of stupidly long contracts.

Honestly, I don't think the season will start on time. The negotiations started too late.
