    On Saturday, league sources told TSN that the NHL may be prepared to make another offer to the players, but that it would contain only "cosmetic" changes to the $42.5 million dollar deal that was presented as a "final offer" to the players on Tuesday night.

    Tsn just did a report from NY live.

    And Farhan Lalji just noted the new 'offer" with cosmetic changes to it from the last 42.5 from the league on tuesday.

    They also noted word of "ladder" system for the cap. Which would move the cap up every year about 500 k in the end stopping at 45 million in the last year of the deal.

    He also said that Bettman was sent back to the league offices after a breakfast meeting with Daly and some ownership groups. Bettman is not part of the talks.

    Yeah, I think if they schedule a PC, then you can pretty much bet that they are "un-cancelling" the season, and announcing a season start date, and that a deal in principle has been reached.

    Sportsnet reports (heard this on the Fan590):

    "UPDATE: Sportsnet has learned overseas players Miikka Kiprusoff (Timra) and Aki Berg (Timra) were pulled from their league games Saturday to avoid injury. Fellow NHLer David Aebischer (Lugano) has reportedly packed up his belongings and is awaiting word from the meetings in New York City. Sodertalje, a team which employs numerous pro players, including Scott Thronton, Kyle Calder and Niclas Havelid, have reportedly voted 100 per cent to return to the NHL."

    Watching Global news here in Vancouver.

    Jay janour was just on the phone with a "high profile" agent and the agent said "jay right now I don't see how they can't come out with a deal this time"

    ANd the agent also said that training camps would likely start on wednesday or friday.. that period of time.
