So one dude says that a deal is coming tomorrow and another is saying that the season will be canceled in a week. Got it.

It would make sense if that is the case.

PA using threat of disclaiming/decert.
League telling the PA that the "best deal is coming" moment is right now. If thats what you're waiting for it's time to get serious.
Sort of forcing both sides together to take one last stab at this.

And I kind of doubt it. Only because of precedent, and this league has lots of experience here.

Is this the first time the whole tsn panel traveled to the meetings? seems odd

They aren't though: You could remove owners completely and have communities run these franchises and they would be just as successful(or unsuccessful).

I have a feeling they are going to make a deal or have a frame work for one. With out any professional negotiators in the room, both sides can kind of say what they really want and what will work without feeling like they are loosing leverage. Less hard ball playing by both sides, a deal could be cut.

Good idea.

They won't cancel season in December. Just a pointless exercise when they can still have a season.

Burton's good news must be tomorrow then.

Agreed. although it's not like they have anything better to do. But still, maybe they know something?

Call me crazy, but I'm starting to get the feeling that the fans are being played hardcore.

TSN panel at the meetings. Meetings going into 5 hour mark now. Press conference scheduled for tomorrow. This Boston guy saying a breakthrough has been made.

Not sure if it's possible, but I'm thinking we may have been played on the outside.

Announce the framework for a deal tonight and I'll die.

I'm amazed by the optimism but we would've heard something about it by now I would've guessed and from a more "set-in-stone" source than Burton.

I seriously doubt that they'll announce the framework for a deal tonight just because of a player-owner meeting.

Although I always seem to be more confident and optimistic when Daly and S.Fehr are in the meetings and the others aren't.

I'm trying to avoid coming up with optimistic scenarios but can't help it. Maybe the tsn crew has the good news but promised to keep it quiet in return for getting the scoop?

Just trying to stay positive before we're all kicked in the balls come midnight.

If true, then they were beaten to the punch by Steve Burton.
