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.

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.

Already cancelled through december 14th, Winter Classic and All star game gone, 2 events that are major revenue drivers for those cities. Next NHL event will be the draft unfortunately

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.
