Howard Berger just announced it.
This is good news
Still waiting for TEAM 1140, Eklund, and the National Enquirer to confirm...
It's on TSN.
TSN isn't credible ATM, but it's on nhlpa.com as well, so it's true.
Sportsnet: It may be a case of too little, too late as reports are surfacing that the league is ready to scuttle the season in the next few days.
MAYBE MADDEN WAS RIGHT!?!?!!?!
isn't that relatively old news?
Madden was likely right. Why act so surprised?
Sure, but my point was these websites are barely better than Eklund.
Saskin released a statement though, so even they can't mess this one up.
Yeah that has been on the website just about all day.
i don't believe they'd be meeting this intensely if there was no hope for something of a season. they NEED to have something this year to remain relevant in many markets.
Maybe Scotty Bowman was right...Saturday.....
After a loooooong meeting today, would they bother meeting tommorow if there wasn't a deal on the table? This seems like a 'let's sleep on it' kind of thing. I mean if they came out with a deal at 12 ET it would be weird and wouldn't get any press. You have to come out with that news during the day, maybe that's what they are waiting until tommorow for?
I want to be optimistic and I am.. but
If they let the season slip by without trying real hard, would every hardcore fans ever forget that ?
I hope a deal is on the table and I hope that they announce it tommorow, but it could also go the other way and be a cancellation! My guess is that there will be a season:due to the impending doom if the league were to cancell. The NHL&NHLPA knows that the NHL would never recover , if it cancelled. The league doesn't have the strength to over come such a fate.
they should of been holding these kinda of meetings last july
