NHL cancels games through Nov.1

NHLGary Bettman

As expected the NHL has cancelled games through Nov. 1. That doesn't necessarily rule out the season beginning on Nov. 2 as Commissioner Gary Bettman and the owners have outlined in their latest proposal. By now you now the players aren't buying into this '50-50Œ stance and have shot down the offer. They see it more as a new launching pad to more serious discussions and negotiations. More later.
