I know we have a CBA thread and all that, but I was just wondering how many of you actually think there will be no hockey or if you believe hockey will be played this year in the NHL.

I personally think we do see NHL hockey this year and this latest cancelation of games will be the last ones.

Im personally starting to lose hope. But part of me still believes that we will see hockey by mid December.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

I agree with ya Gmen. I think that they will get a deal done here within the next month and there will be hockey this year. I'm trying to stay optimistic about it.

With the Winter classic and all star game gone, there's no chance.

I would be pleased as punch if you pressed this green button.

I'm looking at is a win-win situation, either we get hockey by mid-January or we get to witness the anarchy of decertification.

Wow, lot of negative people in here. You really think there is a possibility of them missing more then this year?

They put their egos aside and they get a deal done. They are closer then some may think.

I think there will be hockey in January.
I think most owners and Bettman will want to avoid decertification - i think too many corporate sponsors leave en mass if it happens. 2 lost seasons in how many years? - and 2 sides use the xmas time to frame an agreement as something of a gift for the fans in an effort to mutually save face.

it's hopeful and maybe naive, but that's what I think.

Less likely hope is that somehow this leads to Bettman's dismissal.

I also don't believe Fehr was brought in because the players wanted to play hardball, I think they KNEW Bettman and the owners were gonna play hardball and hired appropriately.

we'll see.

I'm such an optimist.

If reason prevailed there would be hockey - the losses will far outweigh the 'gains' on either side - and both sides would realize not only that, but that they literally owe it to the people who make them all wealthy - the people who buy tickets, cable television, paraphernalia, etc - to get the GD show on the road.

Unfortunately, the NHL prefers the me-first model of management, and ironically everyone is losing as a result.

I think the fact that the NHL accepted mediation might actually be a bad sign - if they've proven anything, it is that cynicism is probably an appropriate way to define expectations where they are concerned. Are they all of a sudden prepared to compromise, or it the mediation thing a repeat performance last play window dressing before canning another season? Not too optimistic.

No one owns hockey.

They should be legislated back to work! :shock:

Since the summer, I have thought that the NHL would lose an entire season, and I still maintain that thought.

And although I have always been an "on the owners side" type of guy for all businesses, I think that if the owners want to salvage their fanbase, they have to get something done asap. They won't see a resurgance in attendance if they lose a full season like they did after the previous lockout. Fans are a lot less forgiving this time around. As for sponsors, that's an entirely different story.

No. Not this year. I don't have a lot of confidence in mediation. The threat of decertification simply makes it more likely that the dispute travels into next season.

Magic 8 Ball says, "Ask again later". Guess it doesn't know what to make of the mediation either. But I'm still hoping, praying, and wishing. Some is better than none.

No. Nhl will quietly take the summer off fire fehr and Bettman replace them with Burke and Kelly and do a 2nd attempt at negotiating. The league will look much different when they do ever return.

You can quote me that a 2 season lockout is such a dumb thing to say. Why are you even a hockey fan if you think two straight seasons will be cancelled/say such negative things? With the progress made today it is very likely that there will be hockey this year.
