    I would think so. I would think that since they are meeting over the weekend now, this is over on either Sunday-Wednesday.

    They are most likely putting the bow on the CBA now to get it ready for the presentation.

    They'll get it done before the BOG meeting on Monday. The BOG will ratify it then, players will on Tuesday or Wed. Formal news conference Thursday or Fri.

    Yes. Because even players are saying that its over.

    But..

    They said that back in February.

    No.. It's over now. For sure. By this time next week it'll be all trade rumors.

    There will be a press release the deal has been signed in principle between the sides anytime from Sat-Wed (Wed being the LATEST), Press conference about this will be a day or 2 later, then it will take 5-7 days(from the press RELEASE) for the ratification which will 100% go through. That is the day this damn thing will be officially OVER.

    There is no BOG meeting. It's an NHL exec. council meeting (it's a smaller group). They'll be looking over the CBA (provided the lawyers can hammer it out by then) and then make a presentation for the BOG. If they toss the raw document in the owner's laps this thing will take a month to ratify. I'd venture the 'PA will go through a similar process because tossing a 600+ legal document at 700+ players will be even more time consuming.

    EDIT - the NHL executive council/committee is a different group than the BOG right? I'm having doubts all of a sudden, but usually when they've been talking of the big issues they have always used the term Board of Governors. Is there a smaller group (10 guys or so) that makes up the executive council or am I having delusions again?

    And I think that someone said in one of the articles that the draft lottery would either take place at the announcement or very soon after.

    The NHLPA has an executive council, its equivalent for the NHL is the BOG.

    You need to summarize a (rumored) 600 page document to 30 Owners/GM's and the NHLPA.

    The more that I think about it the more I start to doubt it will happen...

    I can't stop thinking about it though.
