@walsha If they're "destroying the NHL again" than they didn't do much "destroying" previously, did they? Record revenues & all. @Russostrib

I've gotta stop reading Walsh. He sounds more silly with each tweet.

Bettman's PC should be watched by the entire PA constituency.
Absolutely awesome.

I'm still very curious about the S. Fehr led delegation of players who watched the Bettman conference. Where do they stand, and why wasn't the big D with them?

It was interesting that they witnessed the PC.
It's probably part of the reason Campoli was crying during that radio interview IMO...

@walsha Hey, @Russotrib has integrity, unlike yourself. Look it up sometime. Take it out for a spin.

Good to see guys firing back at Walsh for going after Russo.

I wasn't optimistic last night. I am now. Fehr just blew it today, and Bettman twisted the knife. Some players are gonna say that the union is stronger than ever and behind Fehr, but it's simply not true. They're splitting.

If what Adater and Lavoie tweeted is true, and PA support for Fehr is falling I could see a deal getting done soon.

They've mentioned that it's "big name players" who still support Fehr, but if you watch the looks Crosby kept shooting Fehr and combine that with his comments, he's not one of them. As much as many people won't be able to stomach the storyline, the "depth players" do need a figure to rally around if they are to force a deal.

I really wish I could become a fan of another team and league altogether. I'm so sick of the NHL at this point. I hate the greedy players. You get to play a ****ing game for a living isn't that enough. Then I hate the owners for who knows why, basically cus they are 1/2 of this mess. So pretty much soured on these pampered rich ****ers arguing money. Hockey is the game I love to death and they are not going to ruin it for me. I know its unrealistic to say I'm done with NHL if it ever comes back, but man has my opinion of the league and its players been tainted by this whole situation. I have just lost a lot of respect for the league as a whole, they are destroying a beautiful thing . I almost hope the league goes down in flames to show these ****ers they aren't bigger than the game. Hockey lives on without this ********. **** the NHL/NHLPA

I'm sorry I missed all of the excitement tonight.

Sounds like it's a complete circus.

Just missed progress today. They are finally looking to get a deal done. As much as I've been paying attention to the updates, I've also tried to separate myself. I don't want to look too much into something. Some of these things are getting blown out of proportion. But it is still progress.

I really do think we'll see a deal reached tomorrow. If not tomorrow, in the next week. They aren't this stupid.

This is getting ridiculous and just flat out disregard for the ones that make this business(the fans). They don't realize how much they are hurting the game by dragging this soap opera on and on. We've had enough. Give us some hockey.

I hope as part of the goodwill, Bettman steps aside after the negotiations

As if he wasn't hated enough pre-lockout. I would be scared to show my face if I was him. Agreed though, Daly, Fehr and Bettman should all step aside. Too much drama, and it certainly isn't good for the league.

As predicted, I'm the only one who sees fault with Bettman.

He literally came out and said the league's offer was take it or leave it. The PA met them on many points, countered on the remaining points, and Bettman balked and "took it off the table."

How is that conducive to getting a deal done?

Then Bettman and the owners are whining that the players weren't "appreciative" of their offer, at which point they decided to pack up their toys and go home.

Who's being petty now?

That there is four pages here savaging Fehr for having the gall to negotiate with a counter offer...no words.

I hear ya. They seem so close, i don't know why the owner cannot just concede a little more on either contracts or their variation. However its pretty telling when the PA pisses off the owner of the richest team in the league (one who probably loses the most in terms of real $ by this clown show).

But that little trick fehr tried to pull is complete B.S.
