Yes, I get that....but, we've only missed about 60 days of NHL regular season so far. If they start up tomorrow (I know, not possible, but for sake of illustration)...60 days from now would be early February. How does he get to not purchasing anything for the rest of the season?


probably a typo or something. not a big deal really

John Shannon@JSportsnet
Was just told by an NHL Coach, that since @RealKyper reported Coaches contacting players, the teams have been warned to cease and desist


so does this confirm that some coaches were actually talking to players?

If I'm not mistaken.. He means as long as the lockout has lasted (in days), he won't purchase anything from the NHL for that amount of time after it resumes.. Sort of a personal vendetta against the NHL.


Yes, it has been 80 days missed by the way. Which by the time NHL starts would be like 90, and that would be the end of march. I am not going to buy tickets to the playoffs or seasons end either because they made me suffer, and if I don't go to regular season games I won't go to playoffs either.

I understand your frustration.. I'm totally going to still go to games though. I just want hockey

Aaron Ward@aaronward_nhl
After the BOG meetings, NHLPA presented NHL with a proposal. #TSN

Nick Cotsonika@cotsonika
Players are waiting for NHL to respond to proposal. This presumably will tell them how far owners are really willing to bend.

Nick Cotsonika@cotsonika
Realistic hope is that owners counter and this continues.

Ok, I was really only thinking about when the regular season was supposed to start....I couldn't care less about training camp.

So glad I am playing hockey tonight. I don't have to depend on both sides to make a deal for me to actually play the game I love.

Asked if he could confirm both sides had made proposals, Don Fehr said he would not confirm anything one way or another. #tightlipped

Just got a text from owners side that his guess is season starts on dec 26th.

Dinner break for owners and players at NHL negotiations. Players still mulling over owners' latest offer.

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!"

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.

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
