MHT Podcasts, Return Of Salary Cap?, Quebec's New Arena And More...

Good Morning Addicts!

This past Thursday was the launch of the show and it included appearances by Chris "Knuckles" Nilan, Bobby Dollas, Rick Moffat, Eric Engels, Steven Hindle and more.

The night was a blast and it if you were unfortunate enough to miss it don't you worry, the link to the podcasts is right here.

I am trying my hardest to remain optimistic about a possible start to the 2013 NHL season but the longer the two sides go without any significant progress, the harder it is to see a light at the end of the tunnel.

Last week at an editorial meeting at the Toronto Star's office, NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr expressed some concern that the longer the lockout lasts, the more the players may reconsider their stance on playing under a salary cap.

If Fehr and the players decide to bring that to the table, the two sides will be as far apart as ever and the 2013 season will have to be decided by EA Sports.
