I predict a deal will be announced this week!

Reasons: "50/50 share" is on the table from both sides. Players and owners both stand to lose if the season has less than 82 games. My birthday is coming up soon and this is going to be my present.

The final deal will see the players keep their current salaries at the expense of a small reduction in future earnings potential. The wealthy teams will contribute more to sharing revenue with the not-so-wealthy teams. Gary Bettman will claim victory for the owners. Donald Fehr will claim victory for the players. Peace and harmony will reign (at least until they drop the puck).
