First they have to vote and there are a ton of guys in Europe. Once they agree these guys have to get home and visa problems always seem to happen. Also teams like the Bruins only have 7 guys under contract. Once these teams sign enough players they have to have a camp of at least a week. How all this gets done in 2 weeks is beyond me. I honestly think they would be better just waiting until next year and getting the product together and implementing the proper rule changes, but I am not sure the sport can afford to be gone for a whole year and selfishly I want to see hockey right now.
