NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman left little room for doubt on that Thursday, telling the assembled media after a short bargaining session in New York that the league will not play another season under the current agreement. If Sept. 15 comes and there's no deal in place, we're heading to a lockout.

Although the sources that Travis Hughes uses in his SBNation Hockey post are not the most reputable, this does ruin our hopes that we could start the next season under the old CBA while they continue negotiating a new one.
