One of my buddies has put this into his forum... Appearently, he has heard from CAA security last night at the K rock Claus fest show, that there will be a season and it will start Jan. 28th....

This could be just a rumor or it could be true....

My reaction was we will see.




ATTENTION! There will be a NHL Season coming in January!



I(HELLS) have some good news to report as I and one of my buddies spoke to several security and workers that work at the CAA(I was at a concert @ CAA last night) and they told us that the NHLPA has given in and we will hear the news on December 9th meeting. We were told that the NHL has called and notified CAA that the New Jersey Devils Season will begin on January 28th which is a Friday night. This is a very good source and some great news. I hope this information that I was given is true and I am looking to hear this unfold in the next week up to the meeting. I was kind of skeptical when I was told this but I did see a news letter that was given to the people at CAA about the NHL season beginning on January 28 for the New Jersey Devils.

Let's hope that this is good news and you heard it here first from me tonight if there is going to be a new agreement between the NHL and the NHLPA. If this does not turn out to be true then I am sorry to give the news but it was just so exciting to hear this and to see this tonight from the workers and the Supervisors there at CAA.

I think the news will be true. Can only hope here.

That is all for now and take it for what it is worth. More news to follow.

Nothin' personal, but until I see it from a reliable and trustworthy source (a.k.a. TSN) it's just a big rumor.

Had to change the title ever so slightly cause anyone that looked at the headline might think a miracle occured :lol:

I'm not sure how much the players have given in given that there's no cap in the proposal and the owners have been hell-bent on one. But who knows, the Brylin resigning rumor turned out to be true :)

Well, of course, the security guards are the first informed. Not TSN or ESPN, but the security guards....:wacko:

EDIT: With that being said, I have an optimistic feeling there is going to be a season now as a result of this invitation meeting. I just don't believe CAA employees would get a notice this soon, way before the general public would find out. It's not like they need to know that bad..

If it were true why would they even have a meeting, why not just announce the deal right now? I find highly unlikely that players just caved in all of a sudden. I hope this is true but I doubt it. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

First off im optomistic about this too
I hope this turns out to be true but time will tell
but if you get the news wouldnt you tell your employees
and the meeting sounds like the best time to announce it because then you know what the new CBA will look like.

If a deal is going to be made in on or around the 9th this month why would the league wait a month and a half to start the season? I would think one week to let everyone know when camp opens, 2 weeks of camp, and start the season.

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.

Hm, I doubt it. I know I can get another source on this matter though. My dad plays hockey with a Devils employee and he said he'll ask him about this when he sees him on Tuesday.

Eh, until I see an agreement in place, I am not going to believe it. I'd love for it to be true.

Probably would have something to do with this rolling 45-day window; the league has let its teams clear and fill its dates 45 days in advance because of the lockout. 45 days from Dec. 9 would be Jan. 23 so the Jan. 28 date would be plausible from 'that' perspective.

As much as I want to, my gut is telling me that this is just a rumor and that there will be no season. Which is weird because I tend to be more of an optomist than pessimist.

You guys make it sound like the janitors and security guards were the first ones told. Not saying it's true, but IF it is, some notice has to be given to someone so that venue dates aren't given to some other event, and eventually things leak out to lower levels. Maybe someone was told to prepare the ice equipment or something. Who knows.
