With meetings going on today in Toronto, does anybody have updates on what's happening? Thanks.
when it's gonna start/started?
I'm going to bet that there will be no progress.
ridiculous. humor is outlawed.
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.
What's the fee? Thanks.
$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.
Make that me three........
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
Canada-USA is a barn-burner right now...
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
Are Bob and Gary in the room together or are they firing off letters to each other?
MediaZone...I was a sucker and purchased the package...instead of studying for final exams at college
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.
I didn't see anything about forthcoming statements
how about we tell tell the NHL and NHLPA that we will not go to any games until they have sorted out their silly CBA?
oh wait, we are already doing that. damn it .. anyone have a plan b?
How about we tell them that we will not go to any games after they have sorted out their silly CBA?
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.
