Media asking for interviews. I explained I'm an inanimate object incapable of sentient thought. They say no problem, we're used to Crosby.

Scoop stolen from the everpresent insiderrrr. They never get any credit for breaking the big stories.

Somebody just placed a cup of water on top of the podium... The Podium already has more Cups than the Washington Capitals.

Probably just going against the grain so if they happen to be right they'll look like a genius.

Need some Franks Red Hot, but yes. RT @TGfireandice: @DaveLozo, @drosennhl: If the podium was made of BBQ spare ribs, would you eat it?

Apparently talks have broken off for the day, they'll resume later in the morning/afternoon I suppose.

So now I'm hearing there are still "critical" issues to be discussed. Apparently not as close as all have figured. Not sure what to believe anymore.

League proposed increasing "make whole" provision to 300 Million Dollars.
League proposed that UFA and Arbitration rules stayed same as last CBA...27 and 4 Years Pro.
League would not budge on Contract Term or Variance... 5 Years... 5%.

The NHLPA can't possibly drag this out even LONGER can they? The league clearly compromised a little with that offer, its take it or leave it time. These guys keep talking about how they want to play hockey, they have a deal, just ****ing accept it.

Both sides are at fault, but I really do hate the way the NHLPA has handled this.

I don't really get why the five-year contract limit hasn't dissapeared yet. I guess the players are going to get stuck with it, apparently the NHL wants an NBA-style system where only current teams can sign a player for up to 7 years.

Meaning when Zajac and co. become FA's next year he can only sign with Winnipeg for 5 years and us for 7. Unless the stupid sign-and-trade of the NBA becomes in vogue here too, where we'd at least get compensation (draft picks) and he'd be allowed to get 7 from Winnipeg since they'd have his rights before signing him technically.

I like that system. It would kill the Parise/Kovalchuk/Suter/Luongo/etc contracts.
