    Most of this article focuses on the Boston Globe report on Jeremy Jacobs. However, there is a line near the end that indicates the likelihood of another NHL/PA meeting to coincide with the GM meetings in Detroit.

    GM meetings are scheduled for Thursday and Friday in Detroit where Bob Goodenow and the NHLPA have an unnoficial plan to meet with Gary Bettman and Bill Daly.

    I read that Goodenow and Bettman will try to get together sometime during the GM meetings...

    But from what I gather, its going to be an informal chat moreso than an actual meeting...

    I just hope neither side takes the hardline approach. They need to do what they did Monday. Negotiate. Not demand and command.

    Bob: Hey Gary! How.s it goin' eh! Catch the Raptor game yesterday?
    Gary: Hell Yeah! Did ya forget im a Basketball guy!

    both of you guys should start your own forum.

    Cause these are just HILL-AIR-E-US!

    Pro-PA people telling jokes are like Republicans Telling jokes.

    Funny you should mention -- pro-ownership is a very republican stance. ;)

    I'm on side with the owners view, yet I'm very left-wing.

    Definitely pro-owner. I wouldn't start matching party alliances with the NHL, PA. As far as i'm concerned, the NHL has been telling the truth and the PA has been spewing the lies. Certainly goes against my party affiliation.

    I just don't like liars

    Is there any other confirmation that they are meeting today? I've seen info on palyers meeting with GMs to talk about rule changes, but I haven't seen anything about the NHL/NHLPA meeting?

    If you look at the bottom of the articles that followed Monday's CBA meeting, I believe you will see some quotes from the actual parties involved suggesting that they would get together in some fashion towards the end of this week. Not all who attended Monday will be there but they intended on having more discussions this week.
