NEW YORK (CBS SPORTS) – Thursday’s round of CBA negotiations produced quite a bit of doom and gloom as Gary Bettman announced that the NHL would not play another season under the current agreement. In other words, if no new deal is reached by September 15, the lockout is on.

That doesn’t mean the NHLPA doesn’t have a Plan B, and on Friday John Shannon of Sportsnet passed along the basic nuts and bolts of their idea. It involves a group KHL All-Stars, a group of players from the NHL, and what would basically be a series of barnstorming games through parts of Canada and Russia.

It’s better than nothing, I guess, but hopefully we never have to find out what this could be like or how it would work.
