    On the update, said they have met today. Then broke off, but are meeting with there own groups. They may meet again today.

    -take it with a grain of salt... it is not from Pete

    Pete will be on at 4pm Calgary time, and then we can learn more

    Pete said this morning that his feeling was a deal would be done in the next two days. He based it on some information he heard (which he didn't share, sadly) and his gut feeling. So take that for what it's worth. Pete is a pretty connected guy, so who knows.

    From http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story.asp?id=114925:

    "A source close to the talks indicated Tuesday morning that he expected both sides would get together later in the day. But as of 1 p.m. EST NHL executive vice-president Bill Daly was still in New York while NHLPA senior director Ted Saskin was still in Toronto."

    They could be having a teleconference...in fact, the guys on Leafs Lunch were saying that it would probably be a teleconference, and others may be meeting face-to-face.

    i guess the question is, where are Gary and Bob? Could they be hammering out the final detail and this whole Saskin and Daly is a big smoke screen. So far the NHL and NHLPA has gottin over on the media a few times.
