NHL submits offer to NHLPA - **Suspension Warning Post #70 & #273*

Rate this topic

385 posts in this topic

Sounds like no talks until NHLPA votes on disclaimer. Seems like marriage counselling is happening between 2 sides.

@IgorKleyner: Kris Letang showing off his new SKA sweater surely means new NHL CBA is all but done, right?pic.twitter.com/NihaSMMD

Players must truly be committed to the cause. Another $65m down the drain nxt week.They're bleeding out of every orifice but standing firm.

Latest #NHL #NHLPA update. Nothing has changed. Process that was on yesterday and this morn has continued. Individual meetings with mediator

What if #NHL had deal to start Jan 12th and play a 52-game season? Sources say it would be worth +/- $130-million in HRR in week 1 /1

Looks like game of chicken is going distance. Fehr believes NHL will give on all issues rather than cancel season. We'll see if he's right.

i have a hunch ... NHLPA won't bargain until SUN at earliest. Wants to get "disclaimer" vote results, THEN return to the table. a hunch

Thats funny, I could say the same thing about Fehr and threatening decertification.

Bettman and Fehr won't be stupid enough to cancel the season. There is too much riding on the season going forward, even in a reduced 48 game format plus playoffs.

Fehr doesn't care about the season cancelling or not. The NHL owners do.

I think you are wrong on this.

Well I'm not going to argue on what our mods told us not to, so I'll just leave it at that.

The mods just want us not to point fingers at the commissioner or NHLPA head. If you have proof if any of the people involved do not care about the season being cancelled, I would like to read that. That would be very discouraging.

The mods don't want the incessant arguing over as to who is at fault for this whole mess of a CBA negotiation, including taking little pot shots at either side during a discussion of the cba. It has been beaten to death. Arguing over who cares or doesn't care about canceling the season is essentially the same thing.

I'm fairly certain there isn't going to be any reputable source establishing people saying they do not care if the season is cancelled.

As vladdy pointed out in one of her previous warnings, the discussion should be about details of the cba. It can also include updates from reputable sources, like Dreger or Lebrun's twitter.

Don't know if this has been posted but I just read this from a poster on Hfboards:

"Ron McLean just stated on XM Radio NHL Channel's HNIC show that the deal is done and they are just working out minutiae now. He said this not as breaking news but as a measure to calm everyone down and to reassure listeners that there will be hockey to watch this year.

They are bringing on a parade of HNIC personalities stating that things are basically done. Jim Hughson just stated that Bettman and Fehr are standing at the finishing line and can't decide if they want to let the other guy break the ribbon."

Take it for what it's worth. I would like to think Mclean would be a legit source! Here's hoping!

"Just heard Doug Maclean mention the towel thing again. The way I understood it was there was a 20 minute battle between both sides in earlier meetings where the PA argued that the towels used on the road weren't satisfactory and unacceptable to them.

Is there anything these sides haven't argued over during this?"

Wow really? Any one from HNIC has got to be a reliable source.

NHLPA conditions for the next CBA to be 10 year. 1-option out after 7 years. 2-minimum salary at $800 000 at year 9. Still no deal on that.

More and more issues seem to pop up...

Honestly at this point I don't believe much of anything except for the most basic tweets about when and if they're actually meeting. There's been so much misinformation out there as everyone tries to break news. I'm tired from riding all the highs and lows.

I have a feeling it'll come out of nowhere if a deal is done or the season is cancelled.

Red Wings' Daniel Cleary cautions players to keep opinions to themselves:

http://blogs.windsorstar.com/2013/01/04/wings-cleary-cautions-nhl-players-to-keep-opinions-to-themselves/

“This is a very sensitive time in negotiation and it’s very important, and we don’t need any antics from anybody as far as anyone getting upset,” Cleary said.
I have a feeling it'll come out of nowhere if a deal is done or the season is cancelled.

Agreed. After how no one knew about the mediator in the bargaining room until Bettman said it, no one has a clue of what's really going on. I suppose only the 10 or so players, Fehr, Bettman, rest of NHL officials know exactly what the real problems are. And I remember the 2005 NHL lockout unexpectedly ending at midnight. The 2011 NBA lockout ended at like 3 AM ET, few hours after ESPN twitter sources reported that "not much" was going on.

This feels like the NHL Draft or the very beginning of FA to me. Kind of exciting. But not game 7 exciting.

I want to know more about this towel thing. What happened? Or was that left field sarcasm?

HFBoards guy says it wasn't sarcasm. MacLean was serious. They did argue for over 20 minutes over how the league towels were unacceptable. Not sure if it was brought up recently or a while ago. If it was recently, then it just seems like more and more issues pile up after one another.

Like, the towels in the locker room for road teams? Buy your own ******* towels.

And make sure that Hollywood gets a tax write-off too.
