With the opt out deadlines a month away what do you guys think will happen? I think the players will most definitely opt out and that it’s extremely likely we will see another lockout. The players feel like the last go around they conceded more and are likely to hold more firm in this negotiation. Big hurdles this time around: - escrow is the big one. - HHR splits - Expansion money - Olympic participation - Contract lengths/Structure So what do you guys think, will the two sides be able to come together before a work stoppage or will we see digging in from both the players and the owners. The good news is they have over a year to sort it out, hopefully they will.
