After a couple of long weeks of speculation and discussion about the new CBA, and after so many theorists suggested a "nay" vote, the biggest hurdle has been cleared.
I was actually really surprised to see that nearly 90% of the players voted in favor of the new CBA. I was confident it would pass, but I didn't expect the support to be so overwhelming. Today's Board of Governors meeting will be merely a formality, and we will be officially open for business. Then all the dust will begin to fly.
If you live in Canada, you can tune in to TSN for live covearage of the NHL press conference at 3:00 pm EST followed by the lottery at 4:00 pm EST. If you live in the US, (or anywhere else for that matter), you can visit NHL.com, which will be streaming both events live.
I will have the misfortune of being nowhere near a TV or a computer at 4:00, so I'll have to use my cell phone's web browser to get the news.
