"Quite frankly, all the players are getting paid too much and all the contracts are too long," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "But if you want to compete in this market and you want to win, there are some things you have to do."

That would be awesome if it turns out to be true. Watch its only cause disney on ice is coming through the area. Keeping my fingers crossed.
Also, what does FWIW stand for? Always wondered that

Disney on Ice just came through Prudential actually.

FWIW, is, in this instance, For What It's Worth, I believe.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

With the part of the season that's been amputated by these talks, what's currently listed as the Devils home opener is 12/8 against the Penguins. This strikes me as a "As of now, the plan is to be ready by December 8th, and until the league tells us otherwise, we'll be ready on December 8th."

Here's hoping I'm wrong and it's actually something more concrete.

Could be for a lot of things...maybe they want to have public skating there. Maybe some high schools have booked it for a tournament

I'll be more optimistic when I hear both sides actually preparing to vote on a proposal.

Ice is different for NHL skating than it is for figure skating, I think.

It's probably premature to know whether this is true or not true before tonight at the very least, unless the owners are going to bring something major to the meeting that will get the ball rolling, or they've been told the players will do the same.

I need to go talk to my elected officials, apparently the mayor of morristown is one of the guys in charge of the ice at the prudential center.

If arena ice crews were told the lockout was reaching its end, it would probably be all over the internet by now. I'm not getting excited yet.
