It was poorly worded.

I meant (jokingly) it's a good sign that they agreed on anything, even breaking for dinner.

Not that them breaking for dinner means they have reached a new agreement.

I'm just praying that this meeting creates some sort of traction towards a deal or finding a middle ground on whatever issues they've been at odds over..I want to hear something other than "No progress made, very disappointing, two sides still miles apart."

I was just thinking the exact same thing. Don't want to jinx it. But if it does happen...really eye opening to know how manipulated all of this chatter is.

Probably out of loop, what's this and what you replied to a reference to?

Take with grain of salt but source reports "cautious optimism."

Aaron Ward ‏@aaronward_nhl
All indications are that they are going to meet again. If not tonight,then tomorrow.Positive feedback so far. #TSN

After reading page 10, does this mean that today's meeting was a show and that we essentially have a deal agreed upon that will be announced tomorrow (if we're going on that beat writers story)?

That could be a theory. Some tea leaves are lining up.

Personally I'll believe it when I see it. I'm done getting my hopes up.

If that post by SoS was true then yes that's what it would mean (and would mean they are also probably actually playing Halo 4)

Not saying I believe that but still

Either way, I won't be angry that today's meeting was for show if they come out with an agreement tomorrow.

Curious to see who made the bigger concessions.

I haven't gotten my hopes up yet, this is the first time I've legitimately felt like something will be done. Hoping this guy from Boston isn't a crock.

When could we hope to see a season if this deal comes out tomorrow? Christmas?

Will Gabby be ready by then?

He should be...or pretty close. Haven't been updates but the timeframe is pretty close to when he'd be ready to come back

I hope he isn't also... For his sake especially. Journalism 101... Better to be right than 1st.

Ideally both. But right is way more important.

Reports out of NYC following NHL owners-players meeting say there is an optimistic vibe. #CBA

“@KatieStrangESPN: #CBA Neither NHL/NHLPA has confirmed, but two sides expected to reconvene tonight”

“@DarrenDreger: Told the owners and players intend on continuing meetings tonight.”

When this is over I'll tell everybody the timeline of events that I heard. I think it's over early morning tomorrow morning. I was told we are going to see a Fehr and Bettman "no sleep press" conference at noon tomorrow. This is what my buddy told me about a minute ago...

I was also told TSN has it's full crew in Manhattan. Look you can slap an E4 on this. I'm not an insider, I know if I was reading this I'd be like "********" but I've been friends with this guy since High School. I went to his wedding. He's in my fantasy football league. He has no reason to BS me. What I'm trying to say is this isn't a casual friend or some dude online...

Also, I don't want you guys to think this was done yesterday. It sounds a lot like the big meeting in Boston yesterday was with a few owners
Bettman and the Fehr brothers led to the breakthrough we have been waiting for. I'm sure anything can happen and if I'm wrong I'm sorry. I really debated sharing this info because I don't want to jinx it and I don't want to look like an *******...

It's interesting.

Bettman is a voice for the owners, Fehr one for the players. Take those two out of the room, and we have our first "cautious optimism" report since like October.

You'd have to think, considering the owners pay Bettman's salary, and the Union, Fehr's that they'll have to listen to these "optimistic" approaches being taken.

Will be interesting to see what kind of things the players and owners in the room come up with when/if they get reported.

48 games? Let's do this.

“@aaronward_nhl: Hearing both sides discussed further means of 'giving'. Both are encouraged by the discussions so far. #TSN”

Sounds good! Thanks for the update!

Feeling very optimistic here about the return of the NHL!
