    Legace said a deal is done already, just that the lawyers are going through over 600 pages of material.

    Care to point out where he said the deal was done? I think I missed that point.

    Anyways, I was just thinking about that... if they are meeting through the weekend it is because

    1. they are at the end
    or
    2. they are in a rush to finish this

    or both 1 and 2. In any event, if Bettman is to present the document to the executive committee Monday, then the document would have tro be finished before that... presumably today.

    So yeah, keep your ear to the ground. The news is coming soon.

    good points, and it makes me believe even more it could be today, but when, would they announce it today, i would think they would announce as soon as its done. I don't buy the media attention crap, when its done, its done.

    Oh ok, it was posted yesterday on TSN's front page, so I thought it was recent.

    I hope your right, and i doubt a curveball can come now, it is in the bag, they've been saying 2 weeks forever, 2 months ago they said 2 weeks, its killing me waiting for this thing, i just wanna put this mess behind me and focus on the upcoming season.

    it is still a long wait to get back on ice, but in september, training camps will open and everything will be back to normal, hopefully this offseason goes well, no crap.
     
  16. Wednesday is when it's going to happen.
