    Guess Eklund "sources" were wrong again with the so called "deal in principle"

    BTW this is in the article:

    Drigert beleives that the proposal will include a hard cap with a 15% rollback. Pure speculation in his part.

    that's the season, i guess. i thought the time was behind us for proposals, and the two sides were trying to draft something together?

    This isn't good news.
     
  5. Lets hope the owners are nicer this time and offer a hard cap at 58% instead of the 57% they gave them in December. Hard cap all the way baby.

    Go Owners Go

    IMO, this means the talks they had Wed. had some meaning to it. NHL went back to NY, conference call to owners, reviewed what when on in mtg, formulated a new proposal. This can't be anyting but progress....

    OK, so if nobody's been saying anything, and very few/nobody knew where they were meeting yesterday, who or what are these 'sources' Sportsnet and FAN590 claim to have which backs up this news? There's not a solid quote from anyone suggesting a proposal is coming.

    these rumours don't make any sense whatsoever. the NHL will make a new proposal despite not making much progress from yesterday??? i doubt the NHL makes a new proposal anytime soon since it wouldn't help the process at all. i do believe that little progress was made.

    No one knows what exactly is going on. This could all just be a screen and this is how they want the script to be put together. Why would they wait for the 2nd day of the talks to make a proposal? Things are happening out of the ordinary now. For the players to save face in the PR part of this, to make them look better in the face of the fans would be to make it look like they conceded to the owners, espically since most people are on the owners side of this, it would look real bad if the owners were the one to lose.


    I wouldn't be shocked either way what happens with this. It would not suprise me if there was a deal done tomorrow, just as it wouldn't suprise me if everyone came out and said nothing is done, we'll talk again later.


    Like I keep saying, the talks are not being moved to New York just because.

    Actually he has been right on a few things, but that has never been the point. The point is that some people feel the need to force their ideas and beliefs on others when they should just let it go and not read what they dont like.

    My EXACT question.

    And wasn't it the NHL Owners who said the time for proposals is over? I don't buy this yet

    You people keep reading it. He's going to keep posting. If he is an insider there are a lot of people that don't want a lot more people to know what he claims he knows.

    Settle down, There has to be some sort of proposal sooner or later. Do you think they will agree with nothing on paper. They have discussed, now the Nhl writes a proposal on what was negotiated, Players sign, and I am one happy dude. Keep your fingers crossed and the poitive attitudes, the end is near, good or bad.

    I read it twice. I'm laughing at the people that keep starting threads and using him as a credible source, really. "Here's what's going to happen, because that's what Eklund said"

    You clearly were taking a shot at me that I was implying that Sportsnet and 590 are correct and blogs are incorrect. Keep playing your games if it suits you. Sportsnet and 590's sources say one thing. Some bloggers with sources say something very different. A number of posters here are more willing to believe one over the other. Maybe people should take a step back and breathe.
