    When? Today or tomorrow? Last night I heard it was going to be today, and then this morning, it's sometime this week, which leaves really only 2 more days.

    Then in the stupid dinner date thread, some guy wrote that the Swedish Elite League was told that the NHL starts on Feb 3.

    I'm so confused now

    Hey, the more deception the better. A deal will only get done with the media caught flat-footed.

    At some point, Bettman and Goodenow will be at one of these meetings. Whenever we hear of this, that would mean that we're very close, maybe even on the verge, these meetings with just Daly and Saskin and Linden and whoever else is to put the two extremests out of the picture, or let them go talk to one another somewhere else, but I beleve these meetings we actually hear about is the real cream of the crop in talks.

    And if we hear those meetings went south, then we also know the reasons - Bettman and Goodenow. :teach:

    The meetings moving to NY could indicate that both sides have closed the gap enough that if a deal is reached in NY then they maximize the media exposure in the U.S. by announcing the new agreement in New York

    Plus the League offices are in NY. I think that's the main reason any deal would be announced in NY. They probably have to "sign the papers" there.

    If the meetings turn sour once they add Bettman and Goodenow, both sides need to take a look in the mirror and look at who is running their program and look at the fact that things got moving when these two guys were out of the picture.


    Bettman is employed by the owners and Goodenow is employed by the union. Not the other way around. If the owners or the union want something different, these two guys are supposed to fight for that.

    I'd be very surprised if they are close enough to sign anything today.

    The league offices are in New York, whereas I beleive the union runs out of Toronto.


    They're not moving talks to New York for ***** and giggles.

    There is no article...I had heard yesterday through this board that a radio station in Canada was reporting that there were supposed to be meetings today in New York. Then this morning I woke up and found out the meetings were schedule in New York for "this week"

    And since only Thursday Friday and Saturday remain in "this week" I was wondering what day this supposed "this week" meeting was at

    That's the purpose, or lack thereof, for this thread

    Darren Dreger from Sportsnet.He was on the Team1200 in Ottawa and Dreger said in his conversations with the NHL this morning that "the next 24-36 hours will be critical" if there will be an agreement to save the season and hockey
