I don't know. The owners have been unequivicable in that they wanted cost certainty, not cost containment. A salary cap, not a payroll tax.

That said, if they do hand us the holiday present of a settlement, games would not resume until February earliest. Many of the European contracts for higher end players have a buy-out clause that ends the first of hte year. Is it worth just half a season? If a deal is not reached until January, would it be worth not being able to reassemble the teams? Would players risk exercising their option to leave their European teams without a guarantee of a return to NHL competition?

Who notes that 3 players, including Thrasher's center Marc Savard, have quit their European teams...
