There's a bunch of vids on rds.ca, but I don't know If I'd thrust rds to put them in full.

Nah it was pretty boss. I'll agree with all the 'epics' being thrown around.

And I HATE when people use that word nowadays.

If I were a player I would take the latest deal, cuz it's not going to get much better.

That being said, it's pretty clear that the owners need a better CBA because they can't control themselves.

At the end of the day, they sign the checks.

Even Burkle (one of the owners most interested in getting something done) is pissed right now.

I think you had to be there in the moment. No one knew what Bettman's response was gonna be.

There's no latest deal anymore. Fehr messed up his hand with that last presser. According to Bettman, the negotiations are essentially back to square 1. I wouldn't be surprised if the owners come back with an offer with no make whole at all in it. All that after a confidence vote which the PA would qualify as theatrical of course.

Decertification. It's all that's really left. The whole nhlpa concept has clearly failed. Let the chips fall where they may.

But on the plus side, Andrei Markov is finally healthy so all those other teams better watch out!

You think the PA will vote in favour of it after Fehr's antics this evening?

(Not informing membership about the owners' offer earlier this week, basically lying in a press conference to gain public support and being called on it, etc...)

I don't. I think it's pretty clear with how the NFL case evolved that decertification is a pretty bad bluff.

This isn't about right or wrong, it's about money, and the sooner these people realize this the better. All the self righteous posturing is just sad.

And decertification only puts next year in jeopardy as well.

Fehr should be fired for this.
Ah yes obviously he is doing the opposite of what the players want.

Fehr should have just acce[ted the 25% rollback and 43% of HRR with five-year entry-level contracts

Unlikely, as existing contracts would have to be honored.
