As for KPD's tweet: "Kevin Paul Dupont ‏@GlobeKPD
Not to be a buzzkill, but best scenario I see is 5-8 days before a deal (if) gets done. Then short camp, 5-7 days. Progress good. Process."

Way to go out on a limb Dupont ...the 'short camp' happens just as rumored date was said to happen (the 14th) if you measure out ~8 days.

That's not being a buzzkill.. that's being overly vague so that when a deal does happen within 8 days, and camp starts on the 14th you can point to your twitter and go "Wow.. I was spot on"

Ugh.. I hate KPD.

Was it more important to exclude Bettman or Fehr from these meetings? Please don't suggest both - I'm looking for an either or answer.

And where would we be had the players rejected Betttman's offer?

Could be the Tannenbaum quote?

He said they'll talk until there is a deal.

It was the Leafs owner rep who said something more like "we'll continue to talk up until we have a deal" which really isn't saying much

Correct. Some of the owners said that which is I think why everyone is so positive.

Any other season ticket holders concerned about the amount of games going to be played every month?

Might as well move in to Rogers Arena.

So still at work? That sounds good to me. Keep it up through the rest of the day.

No.

A delegation is a group of people that represent a larger group.

Why uh oh? They did this a few times last night too.. they meet, bring up topics and go talk amongst themselves. It's part of the process.. don't read into it

Definitely why I hope they keep it closer to 50 games than 60 games.

"Back and forth" doesn't mean arguing in this sense, but instead means that the sides are discussing with the other side, meeting amongst themselves, and repeating.

I think that tweet has a typo. Think it should say "for about 10 minutes". Not after 10 minutes as the meetings been going for about 2 hours now?

Mind you, they could've left after 10 minutes and it could only have just come out now. Who knows, eh?!

Prior commitments means they have other things they were already committed to do before these talks began.

Wait a second here, this process has been so damaging to some people views on the league and the players that you read "left room after 10 minutes, going back and forth" and take it as negative news?

Come on now. This is exactly what we want. Have discussions than run it by your camp, meet again, agree, on to the next topic.

If there's 60 issues they need to talk about and agree on, they've probably got 55 right now.

Let the process happpppppennnn

What's even worse is that the Habs, Leafs, Sens, Bruins, Philly etc probably won't even come to town anymore.

You're a Canucks fan, it shouldn't be hard to sell off tickets to the games you can't make it to. You still have th option to get your monies worth out it regardless of how many games are played.

Guys, relax. Walk the dog or watch TV or something and check back in an hour or two.

Seriously, one of the players could sneeze and everyone on here would spend 5 minutes trying to figure out what that means for the CBA.
lol that's pretty much where I'm at now. I almost need to take a step away from my own sanity. Lou saying he was optomistic is pretty much all the confirmation I need that something's happening soon anyway.
