08:19 AM ET 02.11 | Among the issues unsettled during the lockout were whether players would participate in the Olympics and division realignment. The first indication of the relationship between the NHL and the NHLPA in the post-Owners' Lockout III Era will come within the next week when the parties are expected to discuss realignment that would go into effect with the 2013-14 season. You will recall, last winter the league unilaterally announced a plan to realign into a four-conference setup for this season. The plan, which featured two seven-team conferences, two eight-team conferences with the top four teams in each conference then qualifying for the playoffs, was quashed within days when the NHLPA refused to give its assent. Now, they're trying it again.

Seriously, you couldn't just put a moratorium on threads involving the words "Owners", "NHLPA", "Bettman", "Fehr", or "weasels"? Give us a break, FN.

they should realign unless they either expand or contract by 2 teams.

WTF ???? We missed half a season as these two sides battered each other into the new agreement , and they couldn't have sorted this out at the same time ???

I hope that they allow the players to participate in the Olympics, because Malkin is going to go whether they allow it or not. If they say no, he'll probably play in the KHL next year.

I think they can make it optional...but i disagree with shutting the league down for 2 weeks

How much common sense does it take to put Winnipeg in the West?
