Cautious Optimism

With the deadline date for the lockout quickly approaching, there is more and more optimism coming from the meetings. There are still issues that need to be sorted out, but some are reporting that a deal is “very close.

While it has been a roller coaster ride over the past few months, today has seemed to hit a new high…but be cautious. We’ve seen how quickly this ride can be derailed. With only days left to reach an agreement, it’s important to be cautiously optimistic.

If, in fact, a season does happen, it will be around 48 games in length. It will be much different than a regular, 82 game season, but hockey would be back. At least fans would have the NHL for half of a season.

The next 24 hours COULD be huge for hockey. Hopefully, they will.

I founded Buffalo Hockey Central in 2008 and have poured hours and hours into this site. Luckily, we have a great team of writers and designers who have helped keep this up and running despite a ton of out-of-pocket costs. We do this because we enjoy it, and we're desperate to see the Sabres win the Cup someday, but they have to make the playoffs first.
