The big phrase here is cautious optimism. Definitely some promise. I think they're even still talking.
Get the hot heads (especially Bettman and the Fehrs) out of the room and get players and owners talking. I could see how people (Botta) could immediately think it's going to go nowhere...I was a bit skeptical myself and still am to an extent. But I understand that this was intended to be a bit of a fresh start for both sides...if it kicks them in gear, great. If not...it was worth a shot. We're not getting anywhere with the Fehr sisters and Bettman/Daly anyway.
My fear is that any progress could be stifled if Bettman and Fehr re-enter the picture kinda tarnish any momentum.
