    Any news or new information today? Please post here

    I think today is the last kick at the can for the NHLPA and NHL to come to an agreement, if not Bettman will probably call season tomorrow or Wednesday (atleast thats what i've read)

    I still think the NHLPA will have one final offer to NHL.... if not :cry:

    Same old song and dance going on today...same old rhetoric from the players, and same old "no further comment" from the owners

    Yah , i'd like to think that they're still meeting behind closed doors and not letting the media no anything and then boom come out with a deal ...you never know.
    I really believe the nhlpa are gonna bring a 5 or 8 year deal to the table ...they probably allready have so they are negoitating it now . Hope for the best ...and i hope we get some info today . Im keeping an eye on Eklunds site!!

    An announcement to cancel the season won't be made until at least Wednesday.Tuesday is the funeral for the Sutter father so the NHL won't announce anything on Tuesday

    The posts were deleted. There was a post relating to season saving meetings to be held today. I will leave the posts deleted, and Ginner, if you hear the report again, post it here.

    Bill Waters on sportsnet said that the players and owners exchanged "what ifs" with each other. They are actually negotiating this time.

    Columbus, Ohio local news just cited AP as saying that the announcement will come Wednesday at one.

    Looks like they will observe Mr. Sutter's passing....................................................... or they're buying time....

    This is the hard deadline. 1:00 pm EST on Wednesday. Just think, it doesn't matter if you have a season, or if you don't, you still need a press conference for the league, and for all the teams to get people back in the seats.

    1:00 pm Wednesday, its the HARD deadline we have been waiting for. Let the negotiations begin.
