    what are you talking about? They said I could use it! Those NHL people and their shady tactics. Now how am I going to broadcast my plot of world domination to the UN?

    Oh, here and there

    You could take the more traditional route of the single camera in your evil lair, which inexplicably has a direct link to the UN.

    Correct me if my logic is faulty here... but how would the NHL know in advance about a press conference WHILE they are still meeting with the players, unless they are going to announce that there has been a deal in principle? I mean if they were disagreeing now they wouldn't be schedulign a press conference announcing no progress WHILE thep layers are still meeting with them...

    CBC newsworld is the first source to report from a "credible" news source that there are rumblings of a Press Conference.

    I pretty much dont believe anything the media spouts, but I must admit that since December 9th when the players made their proposal... I have been addicted to checking the latest developments more or less. The first 3 months I barely gave a **** but since then its quite addicting... in a bad way.

    Ah well, the end is near.

    Perhaps the negotiators agreed but they need to get the votes, or they have agreed to all the big stuff and they want to get all the loose ends tied up that they can before they go on air. Or perhaps someone is just jumping the shark.

    Thanks for the link! If their holding a press conference, it can only be for one reason: to announce the uncancellation of the season! They wouldn't hold one, otherwise............ :handclap:

    They may have already agreed on the big matter. They may just be working on the other details of the CBA that are required before you can even walk out and say you have agreed on anything.

    I find it very hard to beleive that they would call a press conference to "cancel the potential uncancellation of the season" :lol

    Yeah, same here, lol. If no progress was made in that meeting, no way would they be holding a press conference today. It's gotta mean something.........
