    Perhaps someone can refresh my memory but didn't he say this before when they were scrambling in February?

    No -- in fact, Melnyk has been one of the more prominent hard liners amongst the ownership group, so to hear him pipe up regarding a potential settlement was a pleasant surprise. There's no way Melnyk was budging from cost certainty, so there must be a reasonably attractive deal shaping up if he is sounding hopeful.

    aside from the CBA talk... this is fantastic news regarding the silent victims of the lockout: Employees of the offices and venues.

    Glad to see things going back to normal. :handclap:

    NHL already has what they wanted, a linkage deal with a salary cap. So now it's up to them to just get the best deal possible before say june 1st before making the deal.

    I have absolutely no doubt that NHL will start in time next fall.

    As my fellow Sens fans will point out, Melnyk also promised that Ottawa would beat Toronto in that ill-fated game 7.

    So he's been wrong before.

    Was it not Melnyk who claimed the NHL would be using replacement players as well next season?

    Mind you it looks like he has other things to occupy his time with the expanding investigations by the US Securities and exchange Commission and the Ontario Securities Commission over accounting irregularities, insider trading and improper disclosure.

    An NHL owner accused of accounting irregularities - will wonders never cease.

    Unless it's Bettman saying that we have a new CBA, I believe no one.

    He can talk about positive feelings all he wants, but as it stands right now I still see little reason to hope in this godforsaken lock out crap.
