What do you think the leagues status will be by October 1 if european hockey teams refuse to include "out clauses" in a players contract. I have been hearing of late they the leagues are planning on doing this. What do you think happens to the CBA process if these Euro teams follow through with this plan? I think that the first 3 all have an eqaul shot of happening. It's very hard to call which will happen, but I have a good feeling about a deal by October.
