Expect Movement within 48 Hours

from canada.com, Another day without any contact between the NHL and NHL Players' Association on Tuesday but the league will likely heat things up in the next 48 hours. It's believed the NHL will finally specify a drop-dead date on the season. The NHL will likely cancel the season either late this week or early next week if a miracle agreement isn't reached before then.
I personally think the NHL would not announce a drop dead date, just cancel the season. As mentioned in a post a few days ago, Bettman is worried about legal issues if he sets an exact deadline.
