Don't believe the gloom and doom. The NHL is too close to an agreement to stop talking now.
The National Hockey League has officially announced the cancellation of the 2012-13 regular season through December 14.
The NHL rejected the players' latest proposal, but the two sides appear to be gaining some traction.
In a memo to the players, Don Fehr says he's crafted a deal that should end the lockout and get the players back on the ice.
