Daly: January Is Point Of No Return For NHL

NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly confirmed today on Toronto radio that the point of no return for the cancellation of the season is “sometime in mid-January.”

Daly’s assertion is consistent with what happened after the 1994-95 lockout when a 48-game schedule started on Jan. 20. (Granted, the 2004-05 season wasn’t officially canceled until Feb. 16.)

Daly also said it was a “crap shoot” how the NHL recovers from yet another work stoppage:

“There’s nobody fooling anybody that what’s going on right now and the fact that we’re not playing hockey is a good thing for either the sport or the brand.”
