    Meeting apparently underway in New York.

    http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story.asp?id=118661

    And regarding the upcoming April 20th meeting:

    A league source confirmed Thursday that a board of governors meeting has been called for April 20, where the subject of replacement players will once again be on the table.

    "It would be to discuss results of homework assignments clubs were all given, and to make some decisions," said the source.

    What's the over/under that all they're doing in these 'secret' meetings is having one kicka$$ World of Warcraft LAN party?

    Taking Horde vs. Alliance to a whole new level... :shakehead

    Bettman and Goodenow in attendance, as expected.

    http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/article.jsp?content=20050317_110516_4928

    On-site sources tell Sportsnet NHLPA Executive Director Bob Goodenow and NHL Comissioner Gary Bettman are currently meeting in New York.

    The pair have been spotted having what appears to be an informal conversation, perhaps a warm-up discussion to a meeting that is expected to also include both sides legal parties.

    they're meeting so bettman can drop the replacement players date - and say you've got until this date or we're moving on without you. should be a short meeting.
