08:23 AM ET 01.03 | There were good signs Wednesday, of course, but as with just about every mile of the lockout's roads, there were less optimistic signs, too. The league has set a deadline of Jan. 11 for the deal to get done so a 48-game schedule can start by Jan. 19. A source said teams have not been given any indication they should prepare for a schedule, not even so far as tentative home and away dates. What has become the biggest sticking point now is with players' pensions. ... Other main points are the league-proposed $60 million salary cap for 2013-14, and a player-proposed limit on salary escrow. The biggest previous issue -- how the two sides split up the pot of hockey-related revenue -- already has been resolved.

nothing so harsh as that.I reccommend a "Humiliation Tour", where they go to every city with an NHL team and Columbus and have to stand in the parking lot of the arena and be roundly taunted

I don't know that you can count Anaheim on that list. If they don't show to their parking lot for the cup parade why would they for a humiliation tour?

Find the coldest city in Canada and have them stand out there in beach attire for about 24 hours while holding a sign saying: "Our only constituents are hockey fans. We love you and have been fighting for you all this time. Welcome back."

Only one reason for Brittney to have her mouth open. Not singing.
