    I haven't got a clue how these things work, nor do I have speakers on my computer here at work to motivate me to figure it out, but http://www.tsn.ca has a link on their front page to the conference via cybercast......

    The Score popped in before Bettman and Daly pooped in and confirmed that there are another set of talks for next week on Tuesday or Wednesday in New York... they also said that they suspect it was a very signifigant proposal from the PA.

    That being said, the Press Conf. hasnt started yet. Will keep watching.

    That article sounded promising, but why are they waiting until next week to talk again as opposed tomorrow? They probably want to draw up a counter offer, but I say that they stop dragging their heels and stay up all night to make an offer if they have to. It's December...they need to get moving.

    I hope nobody expected them to come out and say that the lockout was over and the season will start today, these things take time, lawyers have to go over everything, etc...

    The good news IMO, is that the meeting is over, and none of the players came out and bashed the owners and vice versa...the deal the NHLPA offered obviously interested Bettman, there's probably going to be a few tweaks and what not, but I think that we as fans should be very happy with today's developments, now I could be way off, but I think that today has been positive, and the fact that there are more talks scheduled, indicate that there is a deal to be made with this latest proposal

    Heh, this just shows how confused the reporters are because tsn had been reporting that little progress was made up until not long ago :joker: .

    i agree, the longer they wait to make a announcement, the better.

    but wait, why would they have an announcement if they don't have anything to report, one way or the other?

    is it possible they've decided to put on the season, and work on this contract through the remainder of this current season? i mean it is a OWNERS lockout and not a strike. :dunno:

    Yup, but nonetheles, this is good news.

    The owners will counter on Tuesday, it will contain cost certainty, most likely, but rumors have been swirling according to Bill Watters that the players will "capitulate" or "fold" in the two weeks after the NHL's counter proposal.

    This is interesting, there is some hope.

    That is highly unlikely. The league will not even open training camps until the t's are crossed and the i's are dotted, unlike 1994.
