New York - Now that the world is safe from the fiscal cliff the next big issue is whether or not 2013 will see an abbreviated season from the NHL, today NHL commissioner Gary Bettman remains cautiously optimistic that it will.
Following a 30 minute sit down with the NHLPA and Donald Fehr about the NHL player lockout which is now 108 days old the controversial commissioner hinted that negotiations on the collective agreement are coming very close to a common resolution.
"In our response, there were certain things the players association asked for that we agreed to, there were some things that we moved in their direction, and there were other things we said no,but that's part of the process." said Bettman in a press conference New Year's Day.
Donald Fehr said that the NHLPA would examine the deal overnight.
To be able to play a 48 game season, negotiations must be finalized by Jan 11 in order for the teams to practice and be ready to hit the boards on Jan 19/2013.
