He won't make a prediction on when a settlement could happen but admits it could happen soon

Fehr: "If we can get a positive response and conclude this, hopefully it doesn’t take long (to play hockey again)."

Don Fehr made things sound pretty good there. The key is if the NHL thinks the NHLPA's offer is as good as Fehr says.

No BS from Don Fehr. Major moves by PA. We have to wait to hear from NHL, but this is a huge step toward an agreement. Got to get it done.

Pierre LeBrun ‏@Real_ESPNLeBrun
When Fehr says he thinks there's agreement on total dollars, that includes accepting NHL's Make Whole offer he says

Jesse Spector ‏@jessespector
Fehr on whether there could be a deal tomorrow: “Sure would be nice.”

I thought Fehr was stern and professional in the presser imo.

Tim Panaccio ‏@tpanotchCSN
not sure why the NHLPA needed to call a mediator after hearing this proposal. so many league got too worked up over that this afternoon

Fehr does not characterize these talks as breaking off, not in the slightest. Fehr says the NHL provided people that were there to receive a proposal. Fehr continued to joke with reporters about eating dinner tonight and how to characterize the talks. He seemed in good spirits in that regard. Fehr has clearly, just by the presser, has put the ball in Bettman/NHL's court. Now it's time for the reporters to go to NHL offices for answers.
