08:25 AM ET 01.03 | While it's hard not to get ahead of oneself, guarded optimism prevails these days when it comes to ending the lockout. Though multiple sources said plans are subject to change, the Penguins likely would face the Flyers in Philadelphia for a nationally televised matinee on Jan. 19 if the NHL and its Players' Association agree on a new labor contract. The sources said a 48-game season would begin Jan. 19, with most of the NHL's 30 clubs playing that day. Games would be played throughout the day as part of a celebration of hockey across North America. Rivalry games would dominate Day 1 of the shortened season to placate the NHL's national television partners in the United States and Canada, the source said.

If your a hockey fan you may hate Crosby but like most people who know a little something about the game you would love him wearing your teams sweater. I personally am a Flyers fan and would love to see him get smoked but I also think he is good for the game and when the Flyers win I don't want people saying its only because the Pansy didn't play.

can someone translate that?

I'm a hockey fan so I like watching Crosby or Datsyuk or any other player that can change a game, so let's get this 'partly' started.
