    Don't hold your breathe, there will be 10 horus today, tommorow, and Thursday, and then a 16 hour meeting on Friday with the leader Gary Bettman, and then they will say while progress was made there reamian issues we will work on next week. Bob and Gary will talk to set something up.

    I like to think they have air conditionning wherever they're meeting.

    Maybe sweating and stinking on top of each other would do some good though. Question of making them feel each other's feelings better. Like you know, the more nervous or pissed they are, the stinkier it gets.

    "Bob was smelly today. But less than last night. Things are getting better."

    I still have a bad feeling this will fall apart, at least temporarily. Hopefully they continue with the good long meetings and nobody ends the meeting early because they are upset at the process. Keep Goodenow away from this thing!

    If the negotiating committees come to a CBA agreement will they announce it before 700 PA members vote on it?

    Not sure, but I believe they'll announce "an agreement in principle" and note that it is awaiting ratification.

    Whatever you have to tell yourself.

    Truthfully, one should only be ashamed of baldness if they try to grow a combover. Just pull a Jean Luc Picard and do us all a favour. Shave it off, or at least keep it respectable.

    The magic 8-ball and my trusty Ouiji board are both indicating a June 15th announcement of an agreement in principle. I'll be meeting with my psychic advisor shortly to see if it's unanimous. Stay tuned...

    I don't think there ever will be an "agreement in principle"....when the press conference happens it be a 100% completed deal. All the "i's" dotted and "t's" crossed. I am not sure we will hear anything till July.
