I don't want to get too excited yet, but it seems as though the two sides are at least talking regularly and conceding in each direction.

This is actually bad news for me since I have just promised the wife to remodel our back bathroom to increase the closet/storage area and tile the floor. I thought I would have a long, boring winter to get it done.

Maybe this will be the incentive I need to finish it up real quick?

Lets not underestimate the ability of these retards to manage to screw everything up at the last minute though.

But it looks like many people's predictions are coming true - lockout until the last possible second, but no full season lost.

Until you said "lockout," I thought you were talking about the US fiscal cliff and THOSE retards.

Yes, I'm trying not to get my hopes up.

I heard one guy postulate that Bettman had set minimum amount of concessions to get a deal done but even if he go that they planned on not starting the season until a specific date, to try and wring even more out of the players.

If this is true, it seems they got what they wanted to start with and are now just truly negotiating up to that date. Again, this is heresay.

I also heard a rumour that one NHL guy has stated that there WILL be a season. So apparently the owners have basically given Bettman the go-ahead to wrangle out a deal to get that 1/2 season going.

Now I'm off to find instructions on how to build a proper closet. I need to get going on that, since it seems I might only have 2-3 weeks before hockey starts

And, I am set for beer for now, but I have plans to brew a batch with a friend in Feb and I want to make a nice big RIS for next winter and I may as well brew it now so it can age out nicely.

Well if the League is really losing as much money as they say it is, it only makes sense to not play for as long as possible unless you're getting the exact deal you want.

But it looks like both sides realize that losing another season would be bat****-crazy - putting a gun to their own heads.

So, another Canada-US game at the Juniors - and this one is for a shot at all the marbles!

Anyone else going to be awake in the wee hours tomorrow watching the game?

Also - stupid Canuck-based question - how diffifuclt or easy is it to follow the WJHC in the States?

Game's on TSN at 3:30am ET - rebroadcast at 11am ET.

DVR'ing might be the way to go. I know around here, it'll be super-difficult to not find out the score of the game over the breakfast hour.

Wow. USA is definitely a force - what a difference from the last game. This tourney is so much better now that canada doesn't win all the time.

I forgot to set up the DVR last night, so I peeked at the scores. WOW!

I hope I can watch some more of the games before it's over.
