    How can they occupy when the doors are closed? And have you stood outside the Bank on a blustery late fall/early winter day? Not exactly the same as occupying a park.

    I happen to think it's a swell idea. A little surprised that the NHLFA didn't suggest this. Kudos to Clutch!

    I don't know I'm slowly growing more pessimistic every week. You don't hire a Dung disturber like Fehr if you want a quick resolution. He's the Buzz Hargrove of sports labor.

    This will go right to the wire. I'm hoping common sense prevails on both sides but Fehr hasn't changed his offer at all so far. If he keeps this up, we're losing a season.

    Actually, I think Buzz Hargrove is the Buzz Hargrove of sports labor. He's been behind this clusterdiddle for a while now...

    I had no idea The Buzzer was involved. Interesting.

    Not my idea. Just reporting the "facts". There's more going on than meets the eye. It seems that only SSF and I are privy to the real story. Ahhhhh!

    So, last possible day of the World Series is Nov. 1st.

    Dare we say a deal is made shortly after that?

    HA! There's still time for an 82-game season I think if they can get a deal done by mid-Nov. It will be compressed... but it can be done.

    Yeah. They dont' want to compress it too much.

    NHL said a Nov. 2 start would result in 1 extra game every 5 weeks for teams. Which is not that bad.

    If they slip to mid-Nov, two weeks later... it can't be that much more of a compression from the Nov. 2 start will it? After that though, we're looking at a shortened season for sure then.

    No one really cares if the season is 82 games. I'd be fine with a 60 game season or even a 48 game season if it comes to that.

    Agreed. Just play.

    1 game season.

    All or nothing.

    Just go with a 30 team tournament, single-elimination style. Random draw to pick the opening round matchups. Pack this into a two week period. I'm sold.

    Man that would be awesome.

    Hell, even if they lose the entire season, the NHLPA should organize a "Stanley Cup Champion Tournament" and use anyone that is left that is available. Heh heh. That would be hilarious.
