    If so lets consider this the MDT

    I'll go with extremely cautious optimism because of whats coming out in the press....but again, the press knows nothing, hence the extremely cautious optimism

    They should hold talks at the WHA headquarters, whenever they get built.

    It's a tad irritating that the NHL and NHLPA don't give much specifics about the talks.

    But in the end I believe that's a good thing, in terms of getting a deal done.

    But I do expect them to meet at least four out of five days this week.

    I don't care if they say another word before "done deal". Silence is golden compared to the winter rhetoric.
    The time has certainly come for that.

    I like how things are heading, it seems like a real negociation and I think the deal they'll make now will be a lot more fair then if they had rushed to get the season done. Revenue Sharing, minimum cap and lower UFA age can be big wins for the PA. Thats not even mentionning Linkage can become very good too(like the NFL).
    I'm just kinda pissed my teams probably going to be on the giving end.

    Is there any reason that they are afraid of talking on weekends. Will they melt if they do? I realize that they may have lives outside the game, but when you job is essentially on the line, shouldn't you be doing everything possible to try and get the job done as soon as possible?

    Perhaps they use the weekends to go over any new details discussed during the week . . . . . I have no problems with taking a day or two off . . . sometimes you need to step back from the situation, regroup, and begin fresh.

    I'm in an overly optimistic mood! I bet they sign on the dotted line today.

    He's bound to get it right someday. Like the old saying goes, a broken clock is still right twice a day.

    Lawyers probably cost more over the weekend.

    That is pretty much it in a nutshell. It also allows the team of lawyers and accountants closer scrutiny of what is on the table and allow for a strategy at the next meeting.

    A day break every 3 or 4 is not uncommon from my own experience anyway.

    Even with weekends off I still think **crossing fingers and toes** that we'll have a deal by the end of the month . . . . . but don't tell a certain ornery moderator, I don’t want to be scolded. :)
