NHL Lockout: League could 'go big' with game cancellations

After previously canceling only the first two weeks of scheduled games because of the lockout, the NHL is expected to "go big" with its next round of cancellations, according to Sporting News, with speculation looming that the league could cancel (or postpone) an additional month off the calendar. Any cancellation could come after Tuesday's negotiations, unless an unlikely deal is reached.

The Dallas Stars have already seen their first 10 games cancelled, with the earliest possible still-scheduled game set for Oct. 25 against the Vancouver Canucks. If all games through the end of November are cancelled, as is speculated, that game plus games against the Blues and Flyers would be cancelled for October, as well as a whopping 15 additional games on the Stars' November schedule, including a Nov. 25 home date against the defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings.

The Sporting News report doesn't see a deal resulting from Tuesday's negotiations, especially after the last round of talks about secondary issues were so disastrous.
