Hainsey texted the guy a few days ago and was pretty adamant about a deal getting done sometime this week/soon. Hainsey has been, I wouldn't say hardliner, but pretty behind the voice of the union. The only thing with this is, he was pretty optimistic that one week before christmas when they had those meetings in NYC. Though to say the least, he was more optimistic this time around. Take it for what it's worth.
Hearing things like this make me feel more confident at least that Fehr did not tell the players to be prepared to sit out a year. He was right in telling them he could get them a better deal, but once the season is cancelled they'll be getting crap I think.
