Hotstove crew ponder CBA complications, realignment

On Saturday's Hockey Night in Canada broadcast, the Satellite Hotsto...I mean "Hotstove Tonight" crew pondered the Ryan O'Reilly offer sheet in light of its, "How do you interpret the new CBA? It's kind of difficult given that it hasn't been completed yet!" nature (the NHL and NHLPA are operating under a "Memorandum of Understanding" as the CBA's final details get hashed out);

They also talk about the sticky wicket that is realignment--and Elliotte Friedman says that the NHLPA will have a conference call to decide whether the PA will choose to vote upon the issue on a player representative basis (30 votes) or a full membership vote (over 730 votes)...

And they slide in a Jay Bouwmeester rumor and injury news (shortened season = more injuries but not as many concussions?). It's worth watching--and Friedman, Glenn Healy, Kevin Weekes and even P.J. Stock are starting to hit their stride in terms of providing scoops, spirited discussion, and in Healy's sake, a little "truculence."
