Daly: January Is Point Of No Return For NHL

Posted By Sports Talk Florida Rumors On December 19, 2012 @ 2:05 PM In News and Rumors,NHL | No Comments

[1]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.”
