4:00pm ET update: TSN says the PC is off. Howard Berger says he doesn't know anymore. ugh.
Alright, who else is 10 kinds of nervous right about now?
What time is it in finland?? +2 gm finland..
scheduled or possible?
my hand is raised
Can't wait... I don't want to be disappointed again...
I'm assuming you heard this on the fan?
Possible. They made it sound like there was DEFINITELY a press conference tonight, having scouted out the location where they're planning it. Howver, the 6 pm time was thrown in as a 'perhaps six o'clock.'
Eastern or Pacific?
Yeh, The Score also is running the story that there will be a press conference tonight. Fan590 reports that it's probably at 6pm ET, although that time may change.
I second that.....I'm very, very, very, very, very, CAUTIOUSLY optimistic.......I'm getting tired of getting my hopes up for nothing......
I don't care if it is for a season now or in September...
*doing the happy dance*
Isn't this one of those times that it would be appropriate to break away from the international rugby discussions?
Probably Eastern as it will be in New York...
The Score is only reporting that the NHL " is in the process of organizing a presser conference for LATER today"....Like many have said in other threads, the season is already canceled, if they are going to have a press conference it's because we have a season, there's nothing else to announce.
Slow deep breaths.
is there anyway this conference WON'T be about an agreement AND a short season?
Like a dog who has been abused...I'm crouching very low to the ground, avoiding eye contact, slowly slinking towards the out stretched hands of the NHL eager to be petted and comforted but expecting a WHACK "stupid dog!!!". :beatup:
trying to hyperventilate
I tend to agree with you. Why would they call another press conference if only to say "Hi, we just wanted to let you know, the season is still cancelled".
Still, I'm proceeding with cautious optimism...
This just in ...
Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead. ...
Howard Berger 3:40 ET update: Communications director has told reporters to keep their eyes on the NHL media site. Howard Berger spoke with workers who have been instructed by the NHL to setup their press conference for "around 6pm".
I fail to see why the NHL/NHLPA would do a press conference to annouce that they couldn't reach an agreement, they could just send memos to televison networks and the Press...
It HAS to be new News.
