Darren Dreger at TSN reports that the NHL will cancel games through December 30th today.
Chris Botta at the Business Sports Journal adds that this likely means if there is an NHL season it will be no longer than 48 games similar to the 1994-95 lockout.
…this piecemeal approach of canceling games has me dying inside a little bit every month. I wish they would just cancel the entire season and put me out of my misery.
As we await further game cancellations today, thru end of Dec., an exec tells me: "We're not close. We do not trust this group."
