Weren't they suppose to meet today in TO? Any news yet on the meetings?
No News Is Good News.
If they were bickering after each meeting about how frustrated they were with each other, then we would know things were going bad. The longer that doesn't happen, the closer they are getting to a deal.
I say June 29th or 30th a press conference gets scheduled. Late next week.
So, no reps from either side addressed the media today after the meeting????
maybe there just wasn't a meeting...maybe there done and want to wait for a good time to schedule the press conf (after nba finals...or maybe if they lockout). if they are done and want to wait they can't say there just not meeting this week it would be too fishy and would piss too many people off
...now that's optimism.
Yeah it definitely is, it would be incredible if you are right.
Your right no news is good news, but they usually come out and say we had good dialogue ... blah blah blah blah blah blah ... just to keep the fans happy and informed a little bit.
I think they are close to a deal, with just a few details left and will probably wait till late next week after NBA finals and draft and wouldn't it make sense to wait until Canada Day?? I think they'll have a press conference w/ all the details on July 1.
I just wander when they'll have the draft lottery?????
They better find a way to televise the draft lottery and trully build the anicipation of Crosby as the next Gretsky or even more
I dont even care anymore if he can or cant live up to the hype but they need to attract some people at any cost
Both sides stopped releasing information after every meeting last month.After the meetings are over for that week,both sides issue the same generic statement
Maybe the meeting isn't over just yet. Last Monday they met until 11pm Est. You never know.
i don't mean this to be construed as "optimism," but if i were a betting man..i'd put most of my cash on "cba is 98 percent done, in the details stage now"
"You know who" said it ended at 9:30 and now sides are meeting internally. Whatever that means, take it as you will. It's the only info out there right now, no one else has anything.
Definately, the most anticipated draft in memory and maybe of alltime. they better not mess up this opprtunity
So I assume they wrapped everything up for tonight, by now????
I have "booked it". This is the last week folks....early next week the deal will be annouced!
That certainly is the hope, but they've broken our hearts before...
Are there no news to report or meeting isn't over yet? Can't find any info about it
it's because at this stage it's irrelavent.
I am so sick and tired of waiting for this - please let's get the announcement soon and get back on the ice!
This past winter was so weird because of no NHL - I do not want to go through that again
