Fehr's such an arrogant POS...he's late more often than women who can't decide what to wear going out.

No surprise he's late. I mean if he actually had a REAL job I'm sure he'd be more prompt.

Yes, he's saying that those are the owners that will be present.

Don't like the fact that Jacobs is there. Seems like Bettman needs to be surrounded by his little bully.

I don't think Bettman is making Jacobs come to these...

I don't think he minds it, either. I dunno, it's just that every time Jacobs is in the room after some progress, things go down **** creek.

The mere presence of these two suggests that nothing will be done.

Jacobs is a hypocrite, and a cancer to these meetings. I would expect his demeanor during this whole thing from an owner of a cap floor team. Not an owner who spends to the cap yearly, and gives bad contract extensions to RFA's for UFA money.

Owners: PA presented the same proposal 6 times now!

PA: We love Don so much, and want a fair deal. NHL, and the owners only wanna do things their way!

Please don't tell me it went like this again.

I almost got excited thinking Lou bought him out. Then I realized no buyouts during the lockout!

What did he do this time?

His last twitter update was the 10th! Did he have another blog about that again?

I thought someone put on muzzle on his twitter after last time, but he started it back up again. Give it some time, and hopefully he will again. Then we can maybe send him to Calgary for a 6th round pick when this lockout is over!

lol the meetings lasted as long as one of Don's water breaks.

I do think today was good in a way...because the league publicly and privately called for the players to make their own proposal and made it abundantly clear linkage was a non-starter (while also allowing they'll be amenable to negotiating contract rights).

The league can't write the entire proposal without any input from Fehr though, we'll find out if Fehr just wants to stall soon enough or not. If they don't make a proposal after they've been called out on it they're going to look so bad. And if they make another de-linked proposal after it's been made clear to them that's a non-starter it has the same effect.

I might even go so far as to say the PA's next move will tell us if we have hockey this year or not. Eventually Don has to take some time to write out a proposal and give up de-linkage. The league wants that about as badly as they do the cap itself.

Fehr and NHLPA again late for meeting and again trying to base talks off there proposals which NHL has told them will never happen

NHL also smartly refused to discuss contract issues ,, Trying to send the message to players that until the economics are dealt with and agreed to there will be no talk on contract issues
