  3. They both said yesterday they're going to stay out of it. :dunno:

    Edit: However, the only way this can ever be settled, is through those men.

    Yeah, but Bettman said yesterday the season was cancelled... :)

    Who knows what is going to happen?

    Obviously. I'm sure they would look great if they said they were gonna start a secret committee to undermine the union, that would have been top drawer.

    This is way too crazy, I mean there are enough reliable and semi-reliable sports related news shows and publications printing stuff. At the beginning I just shrugged it off as wishful thinking, but the Hockey News is a pretty solid publication and I usually at least moderately trust the Fan 590. Pang was up on this on ESPN as well.

    There's too much smoke here not to be fire.

    So much stuff like this surfacing.

    Lets hope no fire shows up until something is done.

    Brisson on the Fan

    Pat Brisson was just on the fan 590 with Mcgowan and Brunt, here is the opening dialogue:

    Fan: "Pat, there are stories and rumors out there- are they true?"
    PB= " Let me answer by saying this, we all woke up this morning from yesterday's cold shower, and realized the only chance to save this season and maybe this league is in the next 24-48 hours."

    WOW- hard to believe- all the talk seems to be legit- lets see if the players are smart enough this time.

    I agree those two or just one of them could go a long way to bringing this lockout to an end.

    Obviously it must be a risk for them to get involved, but just look at the options.


    I'll keep a 5-10% hope till the end of the week. . .
     
  15. Is it not still cancelled?

    it's about freakin' time. these two are the only link between the two sides. no one can take away the legacies they've left, and no one in their right mind would lose respect for them. so they really have nothing to lose, and an nhl season to gain.

    FAN590 just said they've had a call returned from Wayne and hopefully he'll be on within the hour.

    Never said it wasn't, but something could happen to make it no longer cancelled. Just going with the rumors.

    It is. But daly and bettman have both said that if the Union contacted them about a deal and uncancellation of the season, they would listen. Obviously.

    i agree, it's totally unfair and I cant believe they could do this to their own fanbase, it's bad enough that they spew lies through media channels to throw each other off, now they're making fans reopen the casket...that's horrible, can't believe this is happening

    Yes you are wrong, Eklund has never broken anything first...though he is usually the first to run onto his website and post something he hears reported on a radio station.
