Saying yes was contingent on not only the moment of what was being negotiated, what was on the table at that point in time.

owners will cite more canceled games, thus less make whole, etc, and that's if they put the make whole back on the table.

Players Association has to come up with something HUGE today or the season is done. It's clear as day. I don't think make Whole is in play anymore.

I don't know about you, but I take these two at their words. They aren't flipjacks like this Fehr guy, who is blowing it.

The owners are going to bend these players over and make them pay. Wanna bet on it?

following this lockout is as exciting and dissapointing as watching the sharks in the playoffs.

They are far from a deal. Unless Gary Bettman lied to everybody why aren't we taking him at his word?

He made it clear that the make whole was off the table. He made it clear that, because it was a package deal, many elements were off the table.

Bill Daly says he has low expectations for today.

Mediators present.

This is sure as a blow up meeting as you'll get.. Player will say we'll give you the 7 year CBA and 7 Year contract limit if you offer us 300+ million make whole...

The season is lost. It was over last Wednesday. The fact that some of you look at this meeting as a positive and not for what it is .. is disturbing. Have we not figured out what's going on yet?

This meeting wil end BADLY. It will end very bad. Prepare or it'll be a long day for you.
But you do remember when the mediators left after 2 days before they said they see no point of coming back until the sides were actually close
