I love how whenever we think there are 2-3 issues left to resolve tops, someone tweets at least 7 issues.

Where's the proof that actual CBA meetings are happening tonight, directly with Fehr and Bettman involved?

Sorry, I just haven't seen the proof that it's happening tonight.

Are you guys sure?

I know. My post wasn't directed at anyone really. Just venting as we (possibly) near the finish line.

The NHL was willing to go to 30% on variance and the PA is still unhappy? What do the players want on that front?

Can't say I blame you. I'd probably do it too if I were a Kings fan to keep up the buzz. Tough time for the NHL to go dark there with what's happening in the NBA and MLB, now that the Kings finally made some real inroads.

I'm not really protesting per se not wearing Devils stuff, just tired of being asked about the lockout and comments about supporting a locked out sport the last time I did wear one.

For the first time I finally feel like this is when, not if this gets done. I probably should just avoid this place for the next 24-48 hours though, another dip would drive me to the loony bin.

Not to be negative, but let's not count our chickens before they're hatched. This thing still could get stalled.

Of the things on Kypreos' list, the only one that's said to be resolved is pensions. And with regards to that, for all we know, the "issue" with pensions can simply be having the agreement that they have written down into legaleze which as I understand it is EXTREMELY complicated for pensions.

I feel like 3 reporters tweet certain issues are done and then hacks like kyper run off those same issues 6 hours later as being unresolved. The dudes sources are the janitor he paid to put a glass against the door.

#mnwild came very close to pulling Granlund from lineup last night, GM Chuck Fletcher tells me; chose to tonight
Thank God, I was worried when I first heard he was a late scratch tonight.

Makes total sense now.

Jack Kent Cooke, original and late owner of the Kings joked of the 300K Canadian transplants to SoCal in the late 60s, early 70s, "they must all hate hockey" based on the Kings poor attendance at the time.

Yes, the team was terrible at that time.

Edit:
Here's the exact quote:

Quote:
Cooke claimed The Forum would be "the most beautiful arena in the world." It opened December 30, 1967, to rave reviews. Cooke was soon calling it "The Fabulous Forum." The Kings struggled both on the ice and at the gate, however. Cooke had been told that there were more than three hundred thousand former Canadians living within a three-hour drive of Los Angeles, and remarked, "Now I know why they left Canada: They hate hockey!" Cooke sold the Forum, Kings and Lakers in 1979 to Dr. Jerry Buss.

****** coincidence that lockouts always happen after teams that could use the hype win the cup.

I've just learned to take anyone's tweets with a grain of salt. There has been so much false information put out there by these. People.

Because before the season started all of the Panthers fans were making custom avatars with cartoon character heads on Panthers players, I thought Luongo was going to come to the Panthers so I made it, I haven't been on the forums for a couple of months and haven't changed it yet. I might actually keep it because it fits so well.

@BroadStBull: NHL and PA have been together for almost 6.5 hours and haven't asked for a divorce yet. #HardToBelieveHarry

Agreed, kypreos is claiming variance, what is the problem with variance? I assumed that its not really an issue at all.

Last night sportsnet put up a weird graphic saying NHL wants 30% variance, and PA wants 25% that did not make sense unless im misunderstanding it.

Dont read too much into it. With the exception of maybe one or two Western teams, I pretty much hate every team other than the Lightning.

Well, 2001-2005 or so, yes. The rest we can handle

Side note: I know we're getting close to a CBA because we're starting to hate each other again.
