i just got home like 30 minutes ago, and have heard no news about the meetings
Not that we know of...
But there have been rumors that the PA's proposal was not only bunk, but that they are not going to make a proposal, rather they are going to work off/talk about the NHL's de-linked offer..
thanks man. the last offer they offered? the 37-42 mil one?
the 37.5 mill one..
I would normally say..no news is good news...but that has been said far to often in the past months and there is never any good news to follow.
I think news out of this meeting would have been good, rather than in the past meetings where it has been a shouting match...
But thats only because we really have no clue where these are going..................
Good News you can pull out of this is that the meeting(I think they have started by now actually, Mojo is saying they have) are lasting longer than 30 min...
See... I like this type of dead silence rather than the very scripted "we're going into meetings now" and "we're done with meetings now" and "we're in NYC and they found us."
If it were a PR schtick, they'd be saying something. But again, there's been no good news out of their last quiet meetings either.
sportsnet is reporting there meeting in toronto, right?
Still no updates?
Omg Hurry Up There's Still Time For A 3 Game Season And Playoffs In July !
anything less then 4 games wouldn't be creditable to base a season off of.
I think they should play all summer if they get a deal done in the next few months. I NEED HOCKEY!!!
Enough of the jokes guys... keep this to updates only..
Still no word.. now 6:30 EST
Sorry no update, but I find it kind of interesting in that previous meetings between the NHL and The PA, there would have over 500 people in this section and pages upon pages of speculation about what's going on.
Now it just........
Pretty amazing how the two sides and their inability to do anything constructive has killed our interest.
Still no word......7:08 Est
It is also a monday..
A monday with Baseball opening day for alot of teams..
It has been a bit silent.. no good updates from anywhere in the media it seems
On Sportsnet, Watters said that they were not even meeting, they were in caucaus meetings with themselves... can you believe these guys
did they mean as of right now.. or all day?.. Cause most of the meetings have gone Meet in large group... caucaus to see what game plan is...meet in large group one more time... Go home with no progress...
The fact you can remain positive when it comes to these talks shows that you have a wonderful outlook on life. Either that or you are blessed with the bliss of ignorance.
No news = no progress in my jaded opinion and it'll remain like that until replacement players become a reality.
I'm optomistic to a fault, which comes with being in your early 20s, I guess. And being a jouralism major, I'm pretty familiar with tactics that indicate PR rather than actual event.
But hey, why be pessimistic? It just makes me cranky and more of a pain to my non-hockey-fan roommate. Doesn't mean I think something will happen though...
I agree with you. Why be pessamistic? It just makes everything worse
If no one believes a deal can happen..
A deal will never happen..
So you gotta believe there is hope...
Even if it is false hope...
99 bottles of beer on the wall 99 bottles of beer, Take one down pass it around 98 bottles of beer on the wall....

98 bottles of beer on the wall 98 bottles of beer, Take one down pass it around 97 bottles of beer on the wall....
