Just for you, I promise to change the title to "NHL ANNOUNCES IT WILL DISSOLVE IMMEDIATELY DUE TO LABOUR STRIFE. KINGS 2012 CUP DOES NOT COUNT."

The consensus among NHL management types/agents here this morning is that there will definitely be a resolution to the lockout, and soon.

So, what your saying is there is hope then.....right?

More fun with numbers coming in soon.

Does soon mean before lunch or before Xmas or in the cosmic scope soon could mean a million years.

I'm actually thankful for the lockout, as it has spared us of the experience of having to hear Gangam Style blaring through the speakers of NHL arenas. For that, I applaud Gary Bettman and Donald Fehr. Huzzah!

I donno, I have a feeling you'd love to hear a 'Oppa Gagne style' remix of the song featuring the Kings little Frenchman

This is for you, ziggy. Enjoy.



Personally, I think this song transcends the lockout. Expect it anyway (if and) when the lockout ends.

This is, indeed, the best thread in regard to lockout news. Where better to go than the defending Stanley Cup champion's board?

Here are your updates (status quo, I actually think this is okay news...):

Told by mediators advice there was no face to face between players and NHL today. No change from Thursday in either sides position.
NHL is awaiting to hear from the mediator before declaring tomorrow a meeting free day.

Lots of news out about yesterday from a players standpoint but the most important stuff is that the players do actually believe that they are close to a decision. A few also feel that GaryB and the few teams that run the league haven't made any concessions at all throughout the process and that if they do in a few small ways that this will all be over with quickly.

Both sides have been making "were getting closer" noises, how close is the question and does it matter too.

Its a real who's who of who is and isn't there. I guess.

The players have been told that they won't get a better offer (arent likely to) and are meeting like they believe it and the league has sent its lawyers to the meeting(s). Could be working in the positive or just getting clarification on things.

I have heard similar rumors coming from a member of the kings, friend of a friend thing, that the lockout will end and the season will start up on the 1st.

Take it for what it is worth....pretty much nothing.

If the season starts on the 1st, will there be some preseason games? Perhaps, for two games?

Whoa, I just read bolded part again.

So in essence they want just some itsy-bitsy changes from the League so they go home only crying and not balling their eyes out? Is it really about a modicum of pride at this point?

I mean seriously...what "few small ways" are they looking for? If they are willing to accept the fact that the league isn't going to give in and would just as well not play this season, why can't the players call the owners' bluff and say "we accept."

Now THAT would be fun to watch the owners' reactions.

No comment from Donald Fehr as meeting come to an end.
Fehr added that some things needed to be discussed internally. Can't believe he'd want to talk to the players before he talks to us.
