NHL cancels games through January 14th

Someone stick a fork in this year's NHL season. It's done. The NHL released a press statement today announcing the cancelation of all games through January 14th. Pretty much, that means that the next step will probably be axing the entire 2012-2013 season totally. 

The National Hockey League announced today the cancelation of the 2012-13 regular-season schedule through January 14. The cancelations are necessary due to the absence of a new Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NHL Players’ Association and the NHL.

Wait, so there's not a CBA? Tell me more, Mr. Bettman. 

The players and owners probably have a month or so to get this stuff worked out, which is easier said than done considering that the league won't even meet with the players right now.
