    I will believe it when Bettman and the NHL actually say it's over. But, I do think that the only reason they met throughout the night was because they were extremely close.

    stan fischler's been around more than everyone working at tsn combined, lol

    if he says the agreement is done, then it's done... doesn't mean it's finalized though, b/c it has to have a final once-over by the lawyers and even tsn said that'll take at least a day...

    bottomline, if fischler says the agreement (regarding what's written in the contract) has been finished... we should have an announcement in the coming days

    :jump: :clap: :bow: :handclap:

    I get the impression that this is a media outlet blatantly lying and just trying to be the first to report it.

    The fact that Stan is the only one reporting this makes me question how done this is. Until someone else breaks the story too it goes down as "I said it first" jumping the gun in my books.
