For all this talk of "progress" and optimism...that sounds like the exact same issues from November, PLUS one (pension).

Maybe i'm just so use to the cycle by now that it's ingrained in my psyche to become extrodinarly pessimistic 24 hours after feeling optimism..but this sure doesn't seem to be going anywhere fast.

yes, it's good there in the room, but it doesn seem like they are any closer to a deal then they were when it all went nuclear in december.
I don't think the NHLPA will move to sign a deal until the VERY last minute - why should they? They're getting movement from the NHL on a number of issues. I still think it'll get done, but I don't think we'll see this thing signed until 1 minute before Daly and Bettman's deadline. Just MO.
