The NHL announced on Friday that they have canceled all regular season games through Nov. 1, due to the ongoing lockout. So far, a total of 135 games have been canceled. There is still some hope that an 82-game schedule can be played, as long as the year starts no later than Nov. 2.
To fit in a full season, the NHL and NHLPA must agree to a new collective bargaining agreement no later than Thursday, Oct. 25, which would allow for a weeklong training camp for teams prior to a Nov. 2 start to the season.
Currently, the two sides have a lot to work on if they want to even save the season. The owners' recent proposal was an even 50-50 split on hockey-related revenue, a seven percent decrease from the prior CBA.
As of Friday, there are no future meetings set up between the two sides, and that puts a full season in doubt, since a deal must be in place in less than a week.
