    /pray....

    Let's see if these guys have the capacity to get something done, when everything around them is positive.

    I don't think the deal, if made, will be announced today. Even though I hope so, I think they'll choose a certain day when its impact will be alot "louder".

    I don't think they should announce anything until after the NBA finals...

    I am optimistic that optimism will not be raised at the end of the day.

    The problem is the NBA Finals never end...the longest playoffs in HISTORY!!!!

    On another note...I'm not the biggest Flyers fan on earth, but in my NHL games (2004 and 2005) I always trade for Kim Johnsson

    And finally, I hope some progress can be made at this meeting. Hopefully things continue moving forward...and hopefully they are still meeting when I leave for the Allstate Arena to watch Game 1 of the AHL Finals tonight

    I haven't been following any of this stuff for a while.

    Can someone give me a quick recap on why there seems to be so much optimism around?

    Wanna bet on that? Take this for what it's worth. We are many days, if not a week or two or more from a new CBA. It's all going in the right direction, but there are still some challenges and work to be done. It's not done until it's all done and if I were you guys I would chill with the minute by minute expecation that it's all done. A lot of people are going to say, oh, it's done but it's just the lawyers going over the language. I disagree. Certainly, there's reason for optimism but it is, IMO, way out of hand right now and everyone seems to be expecting an announcement in very short order. If so, I would say you're going to be disappointed. I would be shocked if there's not a deal this month sometime, but that's as far as I would go right now.

    My post was actually a jab at the rampant fanboy optimism the past two days... I tried to make it as over-the-top as possible to avoid confusion of it being serious. For the record, I completely agree with you.

    Still, being called out by Bob McKenzie is pretty darn cool. I should post such nonsense more often. ;)

    Meeting will end badly, and all future negotiations will be under review. Bettman says Goodenow tricked him and wasted time with everything, Goodenow says they would never accept linkage.

    Basketball lockout on front page of sports section, hockey lockout mentioned somewhere in the mix of the same article...
    or
    Basketball lockout begins with Bettman and Goodenow 'game on' hats on last page of sports section...?

    Doesn't speak too well of my powers of perception. Maybe there will be a new CBA by day's end.

    :biglaugh:

    p.s. that's just a joke. Can see it now...McKenzie says new CBA by day's end. Boy, will I be glad when this is all over.

    Don't play with my emotions Bob. I trust in your sources like I trust in god. When you are happy I am happy, when you are sad I am sad. In Bob I trust.

    On that we can all agree with zero confusion.

    Do you remember the days when you wrote columns about actual hockey? Bet that was fun. ;)
