Today is a big day. Of course the NHLPA can still file, but theyll have to put back out to vote, etc. With that immediate threat gone, there may be a little more wiggle room left for the NHL to play hardball with.

I wouldnt be surprised if the NHL baited them into this and are now prepared to dig in on some of the core economic issues again.

The way this has gone, I wouldnt be surprised if this stretches out a few more days with the NHLPA re-hashing the disclaimer talk. If I were them I'd put it right back out to vote after todays session if they see the old NHL stonewalling tactics arise.

The threat of filing the disclaimer was a good thing for the process to keep it moving.
