  1. Well that’s put to rest for now, good news no stoppages. Be interesting to see how cap is handled, a new tv deal due before cba expires could impact things also, with revenue probably rising quite a bit from that.

  2. Agree good news – no stoppages. NHLPA must believe the league will agree to some kind of escrow modifications as that seems to be the number one concern, at least the most talked about one anyway

  3. Bill theres talk of freezing the cap for a year or 2, not saying thats fact, but have to think that the olympics are a go at least.

  4. definitely good news with at least a whiff of some willingness on both sides to get an extension done without a work stoppage in 2 years

  5. When is that fricken jersey contracts up. Get back to rebook or ccm again. Addias needs to stick to grass sports.

  6. Morrison Reebok is a subsidiary of Adidas. Adidas Group is the parent company. Adidas bought Reebok in 2005 I believe.

    To your point I have always wondered why there was such a drastic change in NHL Jerseys when the same company basically shifted branding. I believe it hasn’t gone over as smoothly as Adidas thought it would.

  7. Also in doing some checking Morrison Reebok bought CCM through Birch Hill Equity Partners in 2004. So I imagine Adidas owns some stake in CCM.

    Again it is bizarre the jerseys have changed so much and it would be very easy to get those classic looks back even if they have a modern twist. They have the resources to do it

  8. Ian, do you mean “no cap for two years” or “the cap stays the same for two years?” Depending on your answer, I might just really be pissed. If during the Hawks “semi-dynasty” they would have been cap obligation free for 24 months, we might just have 5 cups instead of 3.
