    Just on Detroit radio and his final words were, " Look for the NHL to start next Saturday".

    Just wanted to get tht out ASAP. Scotty has a weekly chat with this station on Thursday and talks hockey, sports, etc. He said he thinks the players have seen the light and now things could get worse if they do not play this season. He said he has talked with people on both sides and they are now working together instead of bargaining in the media.

    Scotty Bowman is a very knowledgeable man. My Grandma asctually knew him quite well in school...no...not like that guys...seriously...stop laughing...

    Scotty is one person that every hockey person should listen to.

    Do you realize the respect Scotty has from both players and management? He is never out of the loop.

    he has respect of the players, owners, and fans but the fact remains he isn't involved in this. I like what he has to say and pray its true but scotty bowmen doesn't know whats going on in the room.

    I have prepared a statement:


    :gman: :gman: :gman:


    That is all.
     
  16. Won't happen.

    No way there will be hockey this season. Neither side will budge.

    Jim Devellano was on the FAN590 last night.

    He said that at this point, hopefully they can save next year.

    Next Saturday? There are many teams in the NHL that have half filled rosters. If an agreement is reached by the weekend, I am not sure how teams sign enough players to fill the roster much less have any kind of a team by next saturday.

    Pre season games next weekend? Training camp starting mid week?

    Impossible . . . the estimates that I have seen call for at minimum eighteen days between the time an agreement is signed and the start of hockey.

    Dave Nonis was on the team yesterday and he said the 18 days is bogus. He said they could start training camp in less than a week.

    I heard 14. But the fact remains let's get us a deal first then worry about how long till the season starts. I would be happy if we had hockey by Valentines Day.
