from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,
Gary Bettman infuriated players across the table from him at NHL headquarters on Thursday — and, by extension, NHLPA membership — by claiming that a number of general managers had told him they regret some of the contracts they’d previously handed out and would welcome the opportunity to “dismantle” their teams in order to meet the...

If a new deal isn't in place or a settlement doesn't appear imminent, the National Hockey League reportedly will cancel the season in its entirety on Jan. 10.
A report from the Winnipeg Free Press states that Gary Bettman will cancel the 2012-13 NHL season on Thursday, January 10th if a deal hasn't been reached or if a deal doesn't appear to be imminent.

Although it seems that hockey fans are going to have to endure another week of the negotiating roller coaster, most hockey insiders and reporters believe that an agreement will be reached just before the January 11th deadline imposed by Commissioner Gary Bettman to enable the league to play a 48 game season starting Saturday, January 19th.

Previously on Outside the Boxscore, we've posted some pretty strange fan moments but this story about a 17-year-old Pittsburgh Penguins fan refusing to shave her legs is an odd one.

The NHL and the union got back to work Friday, just not with each other yet.
Both sides had plans to meet separately with federal mediator Scot Beckenbaugh in the morning but hadn't set up a time to return to bargaining in an effort to save the season.
The lockout reached its 111th day Friday, and the sides have only one week to reach a deal on a collective bargaining agreement...
