    Who really cares anymore about all of this? The whole CBA thing is a travesty
     
  3. It's simple really. Without a CBA in place, there cannot be a draft.

    It doesn't say there won't be a draft, only alludes to no "public" entry draft.

    Once more . . .

    a bunch of hotel reservations have been cancelled . . . not the draft itself. In all prior pronouncements on the subject it has been said that the draft would be held, either in June or soon after a new CBA is signed. This article says nothing to contradict that. Maybe the thread title should be altered slightly?

    it's like cancelling Christmas. My favorite day of the year is no more. Have to rewatch the 2004 draft and see if I can duplicate my "Blake Wheeler?" moment.

    I still think they will try to have a real draft with TV and everything. If the NHL is going to try to bring back interest to the league after the CBA is settled why not put Crosby's face all over TV in his new NHL uniform? Why do it in secret instead?

    There will just be no show with it... we will get the results on the net and that's all.

    I guess this means that HFBoards won't crash this summer then?
