    So i'm curious... are you guys happy that they aren't just throwing deals at eachother and are caucasing in small groups to review the economic frameworks?

    The more meetings the better. Hoping this continues well into August

    Well into august? I hope not.....

    They way these guys are meeting shows a sense of urgency to get this thing done, not by rushing it either....taking there time but they are meeting so much that they got to be chipping more and more away.

    This is truly great news.


    Thank god the NHLPA and NHL are committed to having another round of small meetings. I was really worried there for a moment.

    Am I allowed to be optimistic or will I get yelled at by an ornery moderator?

    :p:

    I haven't seen the phrase "philosophical differences" in any quotes lately, so I'm going to let myself feel good about that for 15 minutes or so.

    I would hope that at least a framework of a deal is tabled as a joint effort towards the end of next week, sort of to make sure they are all on the same page still. I really expect an offer on Thursday or Friday to be given by the NHL and the PA will look at it over the weekend and bring some issues to meetings the following week and a deal will be hammered out by July 1st.

    Small group meetings? Gee, I thought they had already agreed on a 22 to 36 million cap... :sarcasm:

    I'm optimistic that a deal will be going down soon. I expect there will be a full season of hockey this year. I'm not optimistic about the long-term state of the game, though. Too many teams. Not enough rivalries. Defensive traps. Bleh.

    You will get yelled at.



    At least Saskin and Daly agree on what to say all the time

    the NBA will proliferate that quote not too long from now. The NHL is just passing the buck

    NBA lockout begins July 1st, I think the NHL should announce the CBA on that day.....that would be great for the game I think!

    the fact that the chest thumping has subsided, that they continue to talk,and that they finally have the calculators out has me optimistic.

    I'm betting on a deal before the 4th of July weekend.

    I think the best sign that true progress is being made is what they are not saying ..

    If either side was playing the recent talks through the media as they did earlier we would know its just for PR purposes.. The silence is deafening and its positive ..
