What are significance of these player-owner meetings? No deals can be made during these negotiations, so is it just a means of getting closer to an overall deal? Are these meetings "sanctioned" by the majority of owners, or is this just six owners saying that they have had enough and want to figure something out?

Well Steve Burton from WBZ in Boston is reporting that behind closed doors the NHL and NHLPA have made great strides and an announcement to save the season will be announced either Tuesday or Wednesday.

Find it funny when people also say NHL will come back to empty arena's. That will not happen.

If there's a full year lockout, I believe you would see empty arenas. If they can get a season this year, I believe arenas will sell out.

That's what should happen, but of course, it wont.


I need to see at least one person that i've heard of report this before I believe it, not some radio guy from Boston.

Only will hurt the little guys

Less people at stadiums = Less security , Consessions , Cleaning , etc working and less people at bars/etc around many of the arena's in NHL

I wonder how the sales of NHL licenced stuff is going or will go as this thing drags out. Me personally I am not buying any NHL licenced stuff. The NHL and players arent getting a dime of my money anytime soon.
I hope more are doing the same.

You would think they have to be right??

I don't know if Weber gets traded or asks for a trade when the year is up or maybe two years, but you have to think after putting all that money into him, they wouldn't move him. Also if he does go on the block, will they even listen to us since the offer sheet. I would say yes, but some will also say they won't.

John Shannon is reporting that progress was made during the 5 1/2 hour meeting today. Owners want to meet again after dinner and continue. NHLPA better agree to continue after dinner.

How unbelievably embarrassing. Five months of no progress and the first real glimpses of forward movement is seen when the two people in charge of negotiations are kicked out.

A shambles, a shambles.

Hearing both sides discussed further means of 'giving'. Both are encouraged by the discussions so far.

And so it begins. They just went back into the meeting room at 9:32. Let's see them figure this out and settle it. If not tonight at least lay a foundation for the next meetings.

I'd imagine it has as much to do with the team of lawyers in their respective crews out of the middle as it does Bettman/Fehr.
