Would love if Bettman and Fehr were in their own room completing the deal now!

Wonder if he's talking about the new owners added to the mix (one of them being his boss) or if he's talking about the players (though none of those names and faces are real additions to this process).

I have to assume he meant the owners. He tagged #NHL and he said "they"

If it were the players, he would have done #NHLPA and "We"

Good point. I've heard that MLSE is very player friendly so I'm sure he's met Larry before during the number of MLSE charity events the Leafs take part in. Maybe he's hoping his boss can make a difference here because I think Larry is the only guy on the owner's side that Lupul has any real connection to that would warrant that kind of comment. I would think Crosby might be a bit more hopeful with Burkle in the room. And as we've learned by now, if you're a Bruins player, you don't have any optimism sitting across from Jacobs in the boardroom.

To be clear, @SHorcov is not Horcoff, not a player.

I don´t think anything is going to change.

The owners or we will call them the NHL and the players we can call them the NHLPA, goals are not going to change just because there are different people in the room.

More motivation to get this done.

... as if an 82 game season with full revenues wasn't enough...

Geez.

Only thing that would make this exciting is if there is a deal in place and this is just the curtain lift...doubtful.

Hearing there’s a possibility owners at todays meeting may be given ok to address media. Not confirmed, but a possibility.

Even Dolan?

GOD what is with this reporter breaking that a deal was done earlier what a joke. I agree with someone on the last page I don't see why everyone is getting so excited for this meeting.

What are you talking about? If those guys can be on the same page that's the basis for a deal. They relay it to their teams and they build a deal from there. Bettman and Fehr represent... they are not the only say in this.

This move is like taking the two frustrating characters for both sides out and work on a deal.

That would be hilarious. This was the placebo/decoy, to get the Toews' and Jacobs' out of the process.

Well I'm disappointed. Tweet doesn't seem as funny knowing that it wasn't actually a player saying it.

Don't see how it means anything if they were given the ok before the meeting even started.
