Unified player strategy for fan optimism / not losing fans' interest:

Find reporter eager to write up any scrap of gibberish you tell him, everyone be sure to stay positive and say "we won't lose the season", and watch the fans stick around every time they report it. Yohe has no logical basis for optimism at this point unless he values talk more than facts. I'm surprised it's gone this long. If things don't work after this second mediator meeting / more progress isn't made, it's over IMO. Bettman will call the season sometime next week or the week after probably, throwing in some more token meetings and phone calls in the process to seem "open to negotiation" when it's time to go to court.
