And so the hype for 2013-14 products begins.... hobby will be hurtin' until then, at least we got games to watch. Could be a whole lot worse
ALWAYS LOOKING FOR Stephen Harper, Frazer McLaren, Nicklas Backstrom, and any Lacrosse cards!

As long as they keep the products short printed like this year, it'll be fine for the most part. Look for creativity and buybacks to dominate.

Not sure how I feel about this. On one side they won't be rushing to try to get everything out the door (tonnes of redemption's) on the other side nothing really exciting for the Rookie crop.
One thing is for sure, my budget for hockey cards went way down.PC: James Reimer, Brayden Schenn, Jake Gardiner, Joe Colborne, RNH

I guess the nhl does not care about the smaller hobby shops who are now going to struggle to pay the bills!!! Just another kick in the pills from the league. That is all...

Strange decision really and will not help product that reamain to be produce. Who will put money on higher end product at the end of the season. You would have think that card company would have wanted to include those rookie. Maybe since the season will be so loaded, the NHPLA decided it would have been distracting for the rookie to try to sign cards in between two match. But I don't see why the card company would have wanted this.
