Spill the beans.
Ok, take it for what its worth, A friend of mine who works with a local Sports radio talk show here in So Cal
informed me today that the NHL has already started on the 07-08 schedule, with no change in teams.
He's VERY Reliable, again, take it for what its worth. Thats what i was told.
When the Pens were in bankruptcy, the NHL made 3 different schedules; one with them in Pittsburgh, one with them on the west coast and another without them at all in case the team was dissolved. So, the schedule being made isn't a big deal as far as the NHL is concerned.
Like i said, take it for what its worth.
the way i understood it is the DEAL is already done, and the NHL has already been notified. The two sides are ironing out small details and language and then the announcement will be made.
This sounds pretty DONE to me
