I'm seeing tweets mentioning that Nick Kypreos is hearing rumors of coaches contacting players, advising them to be ready for a December 14th training camp date.

This just in - KHL to NHL: "Now wait just a @#$damned minute Rondell!"

i think we are at the point of no return. if talks break down now, the season is gone

Pierre LeBrun@Real_ESPNLeBrun

Warm and fuzzy feelings from last night are gone. Things are tense heading into tonight's meeting. Pivotal session that will tell the tale

The tenseness could be a good sign. If they're really serious about getting a deal done, and they've made real progress, now each side will toughen up again to grab whatever concessions they can before it's too late.

Honestly, I still wish that nobody goes to the games. Watch them on TV (I know I will) but stay away from the arenas. I have a pet peeve about letting elites get away with hurting everyone else.

#CBA Expect contract term limits to be critical issue discussed tonight. Both sides made proposals on it earlier today

Is this in regards to contract length?

If so - I sure as hell hope this season doesn't hinge on the notion that some players just gotta have that 10 year contract <_<

Agreed.

If both sides cannot work out a deal within the next few days - the season is done.

agreed. it would be pretty pathetic that an issue that only affects a small minority of players would derail discussions. but it's the nhl and nhlpa we're talking about here. anything can happen

I am really hoping this is true, although the post above yours says that talks are not looking good. So in reality we won't know until THEY want us to... :(

Yah there are tons of conflicting reports out there... but personally the way I see it is they would not set up the presser for nothing. And the fact that there are sources that say its to announce a CBA agreement tomorrow spells it out to me. I think we will hear lots of different stories for the rest of the night, but in actuality both sides are just tidying up and finalizing everything and we will hear a deal tomorrow morning.

I hope that to be true, I would hate if it was to cancel the season (which by the sounds of it, is not the case) seems like they were pretty much in agreement about everything aside from contract lengths in their proposals tonight. If they cancelled a season because of contract length I would murder someone lol.

On that note, If****** hate Twitter and it's stupid SSL errors. I don't know what I just did, god forbid I perform a search on the site, and now I can't access it at all due to SSL errors. Can't even add an exception.

For the last 6 months I couldn't use Twitter because of this. Recently it started working, and of course now, nothing. If I can't get this site to work and I work in IT. They done f***ed up.

perhaps Helene means she isn't looking great after latest talks.. out of excitement of an announcement, of course. :P

I don't even have a twitter because I think it is dumb. Most relevant sports related posts on twitter get posted here anyways, so i am cool with that :)

I agree. I only get on it to check for breaking news in times like these. And the god damnf****** site won't work when I need it to. Of course.

I really miss the days, of having useful, well thought out news on an actual homepage instead of this twitter crap. Guys like MacKenzie, LeBrun and Dreger should stick to using tsn.ca instead of shortmessage-system aka twitter.

As long as nothing has been made official, I will remain skeptical.

I will remain skeptical as well as hopeful. I have gotten my hopes up already just to see everything unravel in like 10 minutes, so I won't get optimistic until everything is made official.

Nothing being posted on Twitter other than Fehr sent out pizza to the press and the hotel provided cookies. The podium now has a Twitter account. Make that 2 accounts. Good grief.

#podiumwatch is trending; I HIGHLY recommend reading it if you have an account. Some of them are damn funny.
