Now I've been reading on here that there is a "dealine" of sorts for getting a CBA signed by June 1st. Now at first I thought it was just lost hope on parts of the members here but my curiosity got the best of me and I asked around to a few key people I know and I also read an article on this which has now eluded me but I'll try to find it and post it on here asap. Ok the reason that there may be a June 1st dealine is because the owners are supposedly placing a "90-day clause" that will include a 90-day window after the new CBA is signed to get ready for the next season. In other words the owners are saying that they will need 90 days to hire staff and lure back fans and season ticket holders whenever a CBA is signed. So training camps will not open till the 90 days is up. So lets say an agreement is signed and put in place in August. Well with this new 90-day window the players will not see ice time or a penny of their salary until November-December. That is why these meetings might also be going on because lets say a deal is signed Tuesday (crosses fingers) then training camps and the season wil start on time. It's another way to put pressure on the union and the players. Again when I find the article I will post it, but I've been hearing things like this for sometime now and it was only confirmed to me yesterday. What I want to know is, what does everybody think about this and do you think a new CBA will be signed before June 1st? P.S. This is not a rant but if the moderators deem it is, then please delete it, I don't want to break rules.
