"The momentum that's been gained, kudos should be given to a lot of people on both sides that we've had record revenues growing over the last seven years," Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Steve Montador said. "Everybody wants to grow. Yeah, we want to keep going. We want to play. We don't want to have any hiccups, and there's still time to get through that."
"There's a lot of time, and if we have to, we can continue playing under the old rule if we want," he said. "That's something I think everybody would want, business as usual at least as far as getting a chance to start on time."
