Ah; sweet progress and a new proposal

According to Wild scribe, Mike Russo, the NHL and the players union made significant progress today toward getting their labor mess resolved.

It's significant in that they want to get something done so they can start a normal, 82-game season on Nov. 2.

There is still quite a bit to get worked out, but finally, there is light at the end of the proverbial tunnel.

If you are interested, be sure to click here, and you can get a lot of the high-level details. As for what this means for the Aeros ... well, it means that you better get out to all of the early games if you want to see the likes of Granlund and Scandella.

There is no way the season gets wiped out, now. I'd really be surprised if they don't start on 11/2 at this point.

I doubt the players will take it, and they shouldn't. They owners are one greedy group of b@#$%^&s.

As a fan of the Wild up here in MN and Aeros as well, I had planned a trip down to OKC to see them Nov 1-2 to get my hockey fix---now I'm thinking the roster will be full of a bunch of no-names while the prospects attend the week long training camp that week IF this deal gets done in time...I want NHL hockey back but I was excited to see the Aeros in OKC!
