    Could be good, could be bad. If the 2 sides came to the meeting already agreeing to disagree, maybe they did work something out.

    Press conference and nothing planned for tomorrow? 2 possibilities:

    1) The prosposal is ok and the season will start

    2) The proposal got the flush and the season is cancelled.

    My vote is for #2.

    They are killing the sport. Idiots, all of them idiots. :teach:

    Well, this definitely doesn't sound good. Players sneaking out a back door. Wow, what a roller coaster of emotions in one day.

    As much as I would love to believe that this is it, I have a feeling that the PA proposed their plan, the league rejected it outright, and that was that.

    It ain't over yet, but if I had to guess, the season is just about to flatline.

    Personally I highly doubt that even if the proposal was ok they'd say that the season will start...this will be a long drawn out process of negotiations...nothing will be agreed on yet. If the proposal was decent it's quite possible they'll just say they're going to review it and talk later. Or they'll come out with your #2.

    Well the NHL would want to take some time to overlook the proposal and come to an agreement among themselves on what they think. This shouldn't really be a big surprise to anyone..

    They have around another month to get a deal done. I'm going on when the 1995 lockout was settled.

    Why the press conference later? Why not do it now?
