    -Everyone thought there would be a deal since everyone could see a finish line (46 mil or so)

    -The NHL may go for 45. Bettman would 'discuss it'.

    -There will be one last 'kick at it'

    -The owners 'have to' move off 42.5

    -Meeting is here in NY this weekend

    -Philosophical differences are gone. Its all down to dollars (obviously)

    -Players will never get a better deal. Maybe even this weekend.

    -Next year will be 28-30 mil cap with linkage.

    -NO fracture in ownership. A clear one in the players.

    -If the board (Linden, Gartner, etc) says its a good deal Bob will sign it.

    Bettman has CLEARLY insuiated that he can move up SLIGHTLY off $42.5M. How high remains to be seen, but he certainly won't be meeting the PA in the middle at $46M. I think he was hoping the PA had come back on Tuesday at about $47M or below so he could start to haggle. A $46M offer without clause #7 WILL get the NHL to move up, and then we are litterally seperated by less than $2Mil per team. At that point, you better believe something will occur.

    At the end of the day, I expect a dollar for dollar luxury tax on team payrolls above $40M up to a cap of $45 mil.

    sounds about right.....the owners may throw the NHLPA a bone and agree to a floor of $25 mill [as was in their proposal]

    God, if I hear someone else use this phrase one more time... :banghead:

    I'm just joking of course, but it seems anytime anyone talks about all of this, this phrase is used. Listen to anyone these days.
