The question is:

Will they actually listen and understand what the owners are saying.

Or will they go in coached to be dismissive and refuse to acknowledge the business needs of the NHL...

Good lord, 18 players.

This will be the usual NHLPA ''show of support'' and it'll end by 4:30 PM I predict.

Unless their plan is the other way around.

I may make this my signature.

Anytime you can have someone who is unlikely to ever play an NHL game again in the player contingent, you gotta do it.

Do most of these players even have a high school education, because what this process has showed me is that most of these players are very stupid when it came to discussing anything thats CBA related.

I know the players get that reputation as "dumb jocks", but a lot of those players they sent are really intelligent. I believe Adams, for instance, went to Harvard.

Renaud Lavoie ‏@RenLavoieRDS
Gary Bettman vient s'arriver pour une réunion avec les gouverneurs, au même endroit que les joueurs se rencontrent présentement.

Is Bettman meeting with the governors at the same place as the players...or is my french just really bad?

I think its good there are so many players going. If anything good comes out of the owners' side, there will be more mouthpeices available to distribute it to the rest of the PA.
I really hope the owners present the situation in a way the players can understand and be rational about, even that would put us streets ahead in these talks.

Are all of them going to be in the room? I hope they booked a big boardroom.

Not happy to see Jacobs and Murray on the the owners side. Not happy to see Mayers, Darche and Toews on the players side.

Hopefully those 5 keep their mouths shut and let the others do the talk today, lol.

I'm sure Bettman and Fehr won't be too far from the meeting today. Too much to hope that if traction is made that the league will have something to offer. They would need Gary and Fehr in the room for that.

Honest question: did he go there to play hockey or to obtain an education. If the latter, in what and did he graduate? I ask because didn't Harvard recently have a basketball related scandal whereby the players were scamming the system and their grades weren't legit? I know the reputation of Harvard well but what's the reality?
