“When you're at the end of your rope, tie a knot and hold on” ― Theodore Roosevelt
So something called a Steve Burton - a CBS reporter from Boston who has been right about some stuff in the past - went on Teh Twitterz and said that the lockout was going to end in the next couple of days. Then we get all excited and then Bill Daly comes out and says that this is absolutely false.

It's a lockout, but I've barely noticed.
Been very busy over the last few days with a bunch of things, so without further delay, here's a whollllle bunch of KHL games and action from the last few days. Alex Ovechkin's first KHL hat trick, Malkin gets 4 points, and some orgasmic goals. Yes. Orgasimic.

Donald Fehr and Gary Bettman will not be directly involved in today's meeting between six NHL owners and a select group of NHL players, but don't jump to a conclusion assuming that both sides will suddenly find some common ground with their leaders out of the room.
Bettman has long been the player's whipping boy. They actually believe that he wants to ruin the game and that he's the ultimate puppet master pulling the owner's strings. Meanwhile the NHL is certain that Fehr is not telling the players the truth, even though many of them have been present during most of the negotiations.
The lockout was asinine to begin with, but it's becoming more laughable by the day. It would be great if today's meeting will start an avalanche of positive negotiations, or as Steve Burton reported continue on the "significant progress" they allegedly made yesterday.

It would be great to receive a boat load of cash for Christmas, and who knows maybe tomorrow's meeting with six owners and a group players will give you NHL hockey for Xmas. As great as it would be to receive that stack of cash, we get much more satisfaction out of giving, especially to those in need.

I’m not going to ignore the lockout completely, but given that Nugent-Hopkins is (likely) heading for the World Juniors, and that a whole mess of prospects are ripping up the minors there is plenty of actual hockey to talk about.
