nhl- More Leafs Lunch

Russ Conway was just on, said depending on who you talk with, the CBA still has a way to go.
Russ mentioned a team executive told him a draft might not happen. Stack the draft for next year, go to age 19 and no draft this year. The NHLPA would have to agree to this, and every team would have a 1/30 chance for next year's #1 pick. Bill Watters thinks Bettman will not allow this to happen, he has his own plans in place for a draft that will take place this year. Conway still thinks a "no-draft' year may happen.
On a side note, Russ wrote about this on Sunday, but his articles are now pay-per-view only.
