    NHL should march right on in, and say here is our proposal, you agreed to linkage here it is baby 53-55% linkage, the floating cap, RFA at 30 years old, and a few other gifts for the players, and offer to reduce contracts by 35% on all contracts, they will honour all deals for 2004-2005. If this is rejected the NHL should not talk to the PA anymore, and just offer 46% linkage, RFA at 32, and no floating cap until the players are ready to agree.

    Interesting...at least a day or two sooner than most expected.

    Perhaps a sign of a very busy, high stakes week to come?

    Or...... most of the items have been agreed to and this meeting is to complete the "small stuff" (i.e. dot the "i's" and cross the "t's").

    The Article also said "deal maybe possible before July". On Friday the Canadian Press had "deal maybe Possible in a Month or so". Its interesting the article has changed somewhat.

    Small groups are not a bad thing, they seem to be the ones that get the negotiating done, then the big group comes in and approves everything.

    And I thought Bettman and Goodenow were bad, my whole outlook on them are now much different if people like you were left in charge. Thanks a LOT.

    Hi, Mr. Bettman. It's good to see that you care about the NHL community, finally. It also relieves me to know that you'll be too busy posting here on HFboards to be at that meeting tomorrow. At least we all know something will get done. ;)

    LA TIMES:

    Against a backdrop of growing optimism, representatives of the NHL and the NHL Players' Assn. today will begin three days of meetings in New York, hoping to build on momentum from recent sessions.

    "This is the first time that the two sides are working together, moving toward a deal," a source familiar with the union side of the negotiations said.

    The sides have already resolved several differences, the source said. The players are still unwilling to agree to a 24% across-the-board rollback of salaries unless the NHL honors contracts from the 2004-05 season, but that might not be a deal-breaker. The union may use that as leverage to gain concessions in other areas, such as qualifying offers.

    Also this week, the league is likely to begin the voting process to approve the sale of the Mighty Ducks to Henry and Susan Samueli. The $75-million sale by the Walt Disney Co. could be completed as early as Monday. A league source said the NHL and Disney still have issues to resolve before the league can approve the sale.
