No more

No more lockout.  They have made a deal and are gonna play 48-51 games and have the Stanley cup in June. Made me happy now. I’m glad there is no more lockout. Getting bored of only football and basketball.  Start the season. I want the NHL!!!!!!!

David Aebischer hasn’t played in the NHL since the 2007-08 season, but the Swiss-born goalie is still kicking overseas – currently with Rapperswil-Jona in Switzerland.

This gives him opportunities to dazzle the hockey world with highlight reel moments, such as these two stick saves he made against Linus Omark on Saturday, which captured Puck Daddy’s attention:

Aebischer couldn’t totally stop Omark, however, as the former Edmonton Oilers prospect scored a goal and an assist in Rapperswil-Jona’s 3-2 shootout loss.

While he didn’t get the last laugh against Omark and EV Zug, it’s surprising to hear from the ex-Colorado Avalanche netminder.

If you need a little lockout time-killer, enjoy his team bio, which (roughly translated) lists his “profession” as “heating engineer.”

(H/T to Puck Daddy by way of Dirty Dangle.)

They better have a meeting.

The NHL and NHLPA ended Monday night’s meeting in less than two hours, but here’s a kernel of hope: they’ll probably reconvene on Tuesday, according to Minnesota Star Tribune reporter Michael Russo.

(NHLPA head Donald Fehr told New York Newsday’s Steve Zipay that meetings are “more likely than not” to happen.)

The exact time of tomorrow’s potential meeting hasn’t been revealed yet.

Extending the discussions is a heartening development considering the fact that many believe that the 2013 All-Star Game and all contests through Dec. 15 are in danger of being canceled as soon as this week.

Stay tuned for statements and details from both sides – if they choose to provide any.
