wow, didnt see that coming. Wonder what it was, and why it was so quickly turned down.
Im assuming it was at least somewhat closer to PA side than last week's, if not, then why bother. Maybe it used the word "linkage", the players saw that, and said NOPE.
a little bit of , a lot more
the hits just keep on coming
At least the NHL is trying..
Goodenow has to get off his fat ass.
This is just wacky...
They should make a movie, call it Gary and Bob's Depressing Mis-Adventure
Interesting, however it shows that they've tried to move out of the media's view a bit...let's hope a counter proposal comes now.
Probably didn't change much, if at all, if it took them one meeting to kaibosh it. This is getting ridiculous. I'm really not sure who is dumber, the players or the owners.....
It was turned down because despite all the leaks and trial balloons the PA is sticking firm to its utterly preposterous and indefensible anti-cap stance.
Press availibility by Gary Bettman at 6:30...
Does this mean a press conference?
Yah I get the no linkage argument, but what the heck, take a cap.
Probably just to officially announce the drop dead date. That's right, drop dead Bob.
The PA is getting ******ed...come up with your own proposal too instead of always *****ing about the other side
f this crap
I am so sick of this sh*t
DDD at 6:30.
A big problem, mentioned but not enough ... the NHL is caught up in the impending labor problems of the other leagues who see the NHL as a critical precedent.
This just goes to prove that it dosen't take TSN or Sportsnet to report a meeting for their to be talks or proposals drafted...there's so many behind the scenes things going on...
Now it wasn't like the PA was going to accept whatever proposal the NHL was going to put forth, if it was that easy, we wouldn't be in this situation, there's still some time left, they'll continue negotiating up until the 11th hour, we haven't reached that point yet, and to expect a deal before that, is being unreasonable...
Players. Taking marching orders from a guy who's fighting other PA's battles instead of just his own.
Please tell me you are not suggesting as a certain blogger is that the other leagues are funding the NHL's lockout.....
The Owners are doing this also (note I am not pro-player). There was a recent quote about how the owners feel they are not just standing up for this strike, but the upcoming baseball strike. Who the hell cares about the goddamn baseball strike.
right on brother, stay strong, we're almost there!!! And then you and I can start an "I told you so!!" thread!
I wouldn't find that hard to believe at all. Would you put it past the baseball union to do that? I sure as crap wouldn't. If the NHL gets any form of cap whatsoever, baseball players are screwed and they know it.
No, just that Goodenow's getting peer pressure from the "union" leaders in other sports. And he feels it.
He's fighting more than just his own PAs battle, of that I have little question.
I wouldn't put it past them at all, and there would really be nothing unethical about it if they were.
It IS unethical for Goodenow to do anything other than what is in the best interest of his members ....
The owners represent themselves.
Goodenow represents other people.
