Having a hard time keeping track of what's been going on with the CBA? TSN has you covered!

A chronological summary of what has happened so far with the collective bargaining between the NHL and NHL Players' Association.

Don't look for Jamie McGinn to be in Denver until the lockout has been avoided, or has ended.

"We're still hopeful there's going to be a season," said McGinn.

He added that as of last week he has not made any plans to play elsewherem noting he intends to stay in the Center Wellington area until the matter is resolved.

"I'm just worried about training for the Avalanche," McGinn said, noting he has been training in the GTA all summer.

"I'm just trying to stay in shape and make sure I'm sharp and ready to go."

Elliotte Friedman believes that for the season to start on time, Bettman should step down.

The players don't have the ability to get Bettman fired. But I do believe they are starting to see him as the owners saw Goodenow. This will be the third stoppage of Bettman's tenure, which, depending on how you keep score, puts him with Bowie Kuhn (MLB, 1969-82) and/or Pete Rozelle (NFL 1960-89) atop the all-time leaderboard.

We've all dealt with the "bad cop" in negotiations. He or she is there to say all the things we don't like to hear. Sometimes, however, that bad cop needs to be removed because they become a deterrent to the process.
