  1. #1 by Rick Mears at October 26th, 2012

    And of course if the season is cancelled then all these players will not be free agents until 2013-14

  2. #2 by Patrick at October 26th, 2012

    Is that accurate? I thought contracts run through by the end date, not by how many years they played under it. I could be wrong.

  3. #3 by Matt at October 26th, 2012

    It will depend on the new CBA but last time around the contracts didn’t get pushed back at all and ended as if a season had been played.
    It depresses me that there is precedence set for missing an entire season. They really need to sort this out.

  4. #4 by Patrick at October 26th, 2012

    Thanks Matt, that’s what I thought. Also I agree it is terrible.

  5. #5 by Graham at March 18th, 2013

    Nashville should sign Semin

  6. #6 by bill at June 6th, 2013

    Oilers have to sign Clarkson, will provide toughness, grit, leadership, work ethic

  1. No trackbacks yet.
