    Actually, that should be attributed to the Saskin statement in the TSN article.

    "I think both sides are working really hard to resolve and move the process forward,"

    "still some issues that we need to talk about,"

    ''We've made significant progress "

    ''There's a real sense of urgency of tying to get this behind us"

    "15- to 17-hour meetings each and every day this week"

    I like where this is going. But they better get there this time or the "hardcore fanbase" will get very very frustrated with them.
     
  7. With all these 15 hour meetings every day, you would think that they would be close to a deal. Sadly, there are still a lot of stuff to hammer down.
     

  8. Timestamps disagree :p:

    Anyway, why cant they work all weekend is what I want to know, why doesnt one of those reporters ask them that dammit!

    Yeah but that's Saskin talking... he's the one who was serving Bob's cool aide to the players. He's full of it.

    Either that or PA plans to say: "Ok we are finaly done working on the CBA. But now we want 56% of the revenues instead of 54% or it's no deal".

    Is there a picture of Bill Daly in existence where he's not making this face?

    [​IMG]

    It would be hilarious if he looked like that on his driver's license, graduation photos, and family snapshots. :biglaugh:

    From Roenick :

    Roenick also addressed the reported terms of the deal that's supposedly nearly completed that will end the NHL lockout and result in a new collective bargaining agreement. He echoed the sentiments of enguins center/owner Mario Lemieux, who said the NHLPA would have been better served to accept the offer the NHL presented in February when they were trying to save the season.

    "What we could've got in February is probably 10 times better than what we're going to get now," Roenick said. "A lot of us knew that, but we did what we did and that's what you've got to live with.

    Quote was up on the PA's website before both the entry and the TSN story.

    And not meeting over the weekend probably serves two purposes. One, it allows the two sides to go over what's been negotiated with a fine-tooth comb, examining the legal language to make sure they know what they're signing up for. And two, it allows them to discuss among themselves how far they're willing to move on the positions yet-to-be finalized.

    the deals done........

    it'll be signed on tuesday.

    Thats the logical reason why they arent working through the weekend.

    (by coincidence, it happens to match when I said the deal would get done too:))

    The NHLPA had just started the clock on waiting out the league then, different bargaining strategy now.

    I think it is a good sign that they aren't working through the weekend. I am optimistic that a deal will get done early or late next week. It is good that they're moving the meetings back to New York. Isn't that where a PC would occur?

    Most likely

    I gotta give them credit for the time that's actually being put in now. Even thought they should've done it eariler. They're seeing each other more than they aretheir families.

    That's good for Goodenow. I hear his wife's a beast
     
  20. LOL?

    No. Not really.

    Honestly, someone informed me that his wife is big one. At the time the information wasn't very valuable but I sure can use it now.

    Eklund is all over the CBA talks.

    Info Trickles In...
    Very little information coming out at this hour. However what is coming out is only positive....The first source to go on the record said this to me, "From what I am hearing there is work to do, but the work is getting done. This was the most productive and maybe the most positive work week to date."
    I will report back when and if more information becomes available

    Enough with Eklund. He said it himself: everything he posts are rumours. Doesn't mean a thing.

    What I did like was in Dailey's comment on NHL.com: "(...)it was a good week(...)".

    Suggets (along with the 15 hours a day) that it was more progressive than ever before (and to the owners' side's liking). Saskin is the one who says "alot of work remains to be done". All Daley says is "we still need to talk about some issues".

    2 sides to the story.
