    A lot of sources are saying today is the day. I pulled this stunt post last Friday and many of you laughed im sure because nothing happened (or were very sad like me :( )

    I dont know..but im REALLY getting that gut feeling that today, on July 13th 2005, that this is it..this is the day the the NHL and PA will announce a "deal in principle". Dont ask why..but im feeling it today. Stan "not" the man Fishler is reporting both sides could pull a "up all nighter" to end this CBA, lets hope so. C'on hockey fans..PRAY that this is it..the end. :handclap:

    PS: If the deal in principle is NOT agreed on today then I will (like i said in another thread) ban myself from the business section for a week (or till a agreement). I just cant take this false hope anymore...the media playing with my emotions is just un-cool and I cant take it anymore. :(

    So c'on..who is "overally" optimistic on this day and feels a deal will be signed on the dotted line???????????????

    The sun'll come out tomorrow
    Betchur bottom dollar that tomorrow
    there'll be sun
    Just thinkin' about tomorrow
    Clears away the cobwebs and the sorrow
    Till there's none.

    When I'm stuck with a day
    that's gray and lonely,
    I just stick out my chin
    and grin and say...
    oh...

    The sun'll come out tomorrow.
    So you gotta hang on till tomorrow
    come what may.
    Tomorrow, tomorrow
    I love ya, tomorrow
    You're only a day away.

    Tomorrow, tomorrow
    I love ya tomorrow
    You're only a day away.

    Nope I laugh because Sather killed a great line and you honour that line. ;) Dumbest move he made as GM of the Rangers IMO.

    Back to the topic. This day seems different than the others. If it doesn't lead to a deal then I don't know what will because everything is being thrown at this. They have been going like mad coming into this day. This would be what, day 10 in a row of 16+ hour meetings. If they aren't close now then they should just shut down and make way for the WHL.

    So it has to be asked...which program would get more attention in the mainstream media?

    The NHL or NASA?

    meh I dunno..I'm not really worried about the time it takes to get teh deal done as I am about the "ratifcation" period. It better be shorter then the 7-10 days as reported.

    Today would be a good day for the NHL to announce since the only thing there is is the Tour De France I think ...

    heh, I think negotiations will end tomorrow. But I think nothing is formally or informally announced.

    I was in that stupid Eklund chat. They're claiming it's still being written and will be done tomorrow. If that's the case then negotiations would be done but not the agreement. They don't just say "Ok, we wrote what you want down, here it is." Without checking it first. Which with 95 and the length of it could take two or more days to check for loopholes and accuracy.

    So, the best bet would be leak tomorrow they're done talking. Announcment some other time when it's actually ready to be handed off.
     
  21. I'm in an overly optimistic mood! I bet they sign on the dotted line today.

    Even if it gets done tommorow , we're still going to have to wait awhile before anything interesting starts to happen with all of our teams rosters.

    i have no idea who wrote that song but I remember hearing it during an episode of Chipmunks-- I loved that show when I was a kid but now I realize it was just a tool to get kids into liking pop music :(

    Yes, today is Wednesday folks. And tomorrow is Thursday, and the day after that is Friday. What do these days all have in common?
    a) the media will bring us false hope
    b) the media will lie to us
    c) no deal will be announced

    Do I hope I'm wrong? Hell yea. But do I think I'll be wrong? Hopefully :P
