    Good! Now make a counter-proposal!
     
  3. 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
