Another spin on the same topic but how many of you really believe that the NHLPA will cave on the Cost Certainty System in return for many other concessions so that hockey will start up in January. Goodenow is a lot of things but there is one thing he is not - he is not stupid. I'm not sure of the timeline but you would think that very soon he will propose to compromise his stance of the Cap issue in return for many other concessions. The sooner the better! We need a season that is at least 48 games long in order to maintain any integrity for this year's results to mean anything.
