TSN reports at 10:50pm ET c/o bob mckenzie. No counter-proposal mentioned.
Good! Now make a counter-proposal!
Ya, TSN is saying this on air right now. I wonder if they respond with another offer, but it doesn't seem like it.
I guess "final offer" does mean that.
not surprising. They havent countered or indicated that they will either.
this is ridiculous. i need to break something.
atleast they put the ax to the counter offer quickly... still some time.
Looks like the season will be lost by 6.5 million boys.
BMac also said sources say the NHL is sticking to it's guns.
No negotiating. 42.5 mil, take it or leave it.
Now its time for the owners, players, gm's to get on the phone and pressure these two guys to meet in the middle.
Get it done already!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
153 of virtually NOTHING and now this flurry of activity. yikes.
This should go down in history... Under comedy's greatest moments.
well, there you go . . . seems like they are
see you all next year.
No. Bettman and Goodenow aren't that dumb.
They are not even 7 millions from a deal. Work a deal. It's only a matter of numbers now.
It needs to be 1 p.m. already because this madness needs to stop. The NHLPA better take whatever they can get right now if they really want a season.
A counter from the NHL will get it done.
I think the PA will make one more offer at 46 and say take it or leave it.
He Just Did, it's the NHL's turn! :lol :lol
...Yeah this whole day has made me kinda cuckoo.
The players could come back with another proposal but i doubt that happens. I'm going to bed hopefully when i wake up there will be a deal
There will be movement. As has been repeated over and over, it isn't done till Bob and Gary are putting on the stupid hats, or Gary's on stage pulling the plug. Till then, theres still plenty left.
Like I said in the other thread. This is it. This is last one. The PA needs to cave, or we'll be watching NHL hockey in September with replacements playing under a 31 Mil Hard Cap. Guarenteed.
hopefully... not optimistic how much effect outsiders have at this point.... maybe snider will get on the phone and threatent to knee cap bettman.
The NHLPA rejected it and didn't indicate they were going to counter-propose
ESPNews just said that after the commercial break they have breaking news on the strike, that I don't want to miss it.
I got a $100 that says it's something I knew two hours ago.
*tumbleweed blows through*
