We'll see more and more of this as players want to play, but also have game situations to prepare themselves in case a deal is reached. There would only be a week or so of warm up once a new CBA is in place so its not a lot of time to get in the swing of things for what could be important games in a shortened season.

Mad respect for the Honey Badger. It's just insurance and nothing else, that's a guy who just wants to play some hockey. Where are the owners' supporters now? So much for greed.
