- The Players’ ratification vote of CBA begins tonight at 8 ET

- The ratification voting window will be open for 36 hours, concluding Saturday at 8 a.m. ET.

- The secret ballots will be conducted electronically.

- The NHLPA will issue a media release Saturday morning at 8 am

- If ratified, NHL training camps will open Sunday, with the regular season beginning on Jan. 19

Commissioner Gary Bettman said on Wednesday that the schedules will be released immediately once the vote is concluded, so figure that we will all post the Rangers and Islanders schedules on Saturday morning as soon as possible.  You'll have it here and the first few games on Twitter @stevezipay.
