I still couldn't care less it is just to soon since the last lockout.

Also the BoG is a stupid gongshow, if this thing would be for real Mr. I, Dolan, Thompson, Acqelini and Tannenbaum should be in there, not some of Bettman's puppets.

Whenever a deal will get done I expect 2 things:

Fix the BoG regime
FIRE the anti hockey man

It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).

From Toronto Star , regarding yesterday's activities"

The conversation went something like this.


“Let’s leave,” said Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs, turning to NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly.


“It’s up to you,” replied Daly.

Nhl negotiations are like a drinking game;

1. you make up the rules as you go along
2. most times before you can seal a deal someone gets fed up and goes home
3. you end up regretting it, someone loses all their money, and the game gets ruined for everyone
4. and you do it all again next weekend forgetting what happened the last time you did it...

@JSportsnet: Can confirm that NHLPA has indeed requested the return of Federal Mediators to the process.Needless to say,NHL has yet to agree.

And rumor has it the mediators are not currently available either.
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Sounds like another patented "Donald Fehr stall tactic" to me. He has done a great job at this for the last 5 months.

Also reports that Backes has left the negotiations.

I retract my previous statement. Working now. I'm telling ya, it's not me. LOL

does anyone know if the topic of realignment is on the CBA's agenda? I was a bit excited with the new alignment and playoff format changing (not that it was perfect)

Several mentions were made on Twitter last night that there wasn't even a whisper of realignment.


Dan Rosen@drosennhl

As it stands now, NHLPA is continuing with internal meetings and is planning to meet with the NHL at some point today. No time set.



Dan Rosen@drosennhl
According to NHLPA, the next meeting could still be without mediators, but they have requested for them to get involved.

That can't be a good sign.

I don't necessarily agree, harold; this to me seems like a way to speed up the process - they know they're close.

I think both Bettman and Fehr were bored while the players/owners meeting was going on, so they took in a movie. It was after they saw this stirring speech when they just had to update their constituents on the negotiations and then injecting themselves into the negotiation process.

I guess I took it more as a sign of the NHLPA feeling like the league is still not negotiating properly, but I definitely like your interpretation better.
