Despite the lack of progress towards a new CBA, Detroit defenseman and player representative Niklas Kronwall thinks a deal can be made.

While Kronwall is not happy with the way negotiations are going, he thinks that the sides can make a deal. "I do think there's a deal to be made," Kronwall said. "I think a lot of guys feel that way. It's just a matter of, can we do it now, or is it going to take some time. I think everybody feels there's no need for this going on right now, but it is what it is, and we just have to stay patient and believe in what we do."
