    I'm pretty much expecting the usual "good meeting, no progress" announcement, since now they have to come up with another definition of "progress" besides "agreeing to meet again" ...

    I'll be watching US/Canada instead of hitting my refresh button on HF to see updates. It's just getting so stupid. I'm sick of it. I'm just starting not to care. I don't even know why I still go to Business of Hockey. Wait, I guess that means I do care. This sucks.

    Are you in the US, and if so, where are you watching it?

    Like the rest of us in the US, on MediaZone I would suspect. Small price to pay when you're desperate for the game.

    Ticks me off though that the World Championships were offered to US television for free, and still didn't get any takers. Sad times, to say the least.

    $40 for every game, or $5 per game. The $40 dollar option is by far the best.

    Find one of the links around here to get you started. It's definitely worth $40 for the hockey fan.

    Today was the first day that I forgot that a meeting was going to take place. And I really don't care anymore. Getting psyched to see the Jays vs White Sox tomorrow :handclap:

    Jeremy Jacobs will probably challenge Bob Goodenow to a Zell Miller style duel to settle things ;)

    Wonder what they are having for lunch?Pizza was on the menu in New York :sarcasm:

    Are Bob and Gary in the room together or are they firing off letters to each other? :)

    Well, maybe we can get a new shot of Bettman slobbering over some Pizza. God knows they've been using the same scene on TSN/Sportsnet/The Score since last years playoffs at the ACC.

    I wouldn't expect to hear anything substantial about the meetings until they're done tomorrow, if there is anything substantial to report. can't imagine why either side would go to the press tonight when they know there's a meeting tomorrow... unless talks go so badly that they break off the meeting tomorrow.

    The only thing I expect is a "we started meeting at __ time and ended the meetings at ___. The meetings between us and the NHL/NHLPA will continue as scheduled tomorrow" type of statement.

    Folks,

    We all know that Eklund posts in his blog about the negotiations. We don't allow for discussions to include reference to what might and might not be included on Eklund's or any other blog.

    Your assistance in this is appreciated.

    TORONTO - The two sides in the NHL labour dispute met for a little more than three hours Thursday.

    The NHL and the NHL Players' Association are slated to resume talks Friday, again at an undisclosed location in Toronto.
