It is a good thing. No walkouts, and that the proposals from the NHLPA aren't bad enough for the NHL to storm off but to negotiate/argue/bicker over is a good starting point. The fact that they are going to keep meeting tomorrow is good as well.

Also, this next part is even more reading into things, but the league having an internal meeting means that they actually have something that they can bring to discuss about/work off, instead of following their 'toss this crap out' script that they've been working off.

Gary Bettman just said there's "still a lot of work to do.", which also means that some work has been done, instead of having 'nothing'.

So all in all, expected and not a bad sign. Will need to hear more, but this is not bad by any stretch.
