Fresh Links: Well, This Is It Edition

I don't even know, you guys

So with a day to go before the CBA expires, hope is pretty much lost. Owners, despite making noise about wanting shorter term limits on deals, continued to sign players to six and seven year deals even through today. I guess now is the time to start getting excited about driving to the hockey hotbeds of Manchester and Providence (and Worcester, ew.) For those of you living outside New England, what are your plans for hockey this season?

After the jump, a few deals got inked today, a QMJHL team cancelled a preseason game for kind of a silly reason, and other stuff.
