Glenn Cook, Las Vegas Review Journal Columnist, talks about pedestrian safety and the fiscal cliff deal Congress passed late at night New Year’s Eve. Now that we have a tentative agreement on a new CBA the next step is figuring out where and when actual games will be played. Prior to Sunday’s agreement it had been assumed that a 48-game schedule would be the best case scenario but there remained a slim chance for the NHL to extend it to 50 games. According to CBC’s Elliotte Friedman, the NHL has sent a memo to its 30 teams indicating that the league will in fact play a 48-game season that will open on Jan. 19. Ryan Mouggenal, GM and Coach for The Las Vegas Wranglers, talks about how the end of the NHL lockout will affect their league and recruitment.
