Sounds like a determined Bill Daly.

If lets say they had an agreement on monday (1/7), how much earlier could they realistically start? 2 days?

So the other tweet saying they were done for the night is patently false.

The idea that Florida's attendance is higher than the Pens' anything ever is laughable. I support you dude but don't argue nonsense.
Where did you mention overall following?

I love it. I go into the thread...

"This will be the last lockout thread!"

I check to see what number the last page is....

It's 39.

LOL's ensue.

Source says "it's close". Still no deal but things are progressing.

Once a lawsuit is filed, things slow to a crawl. Litigation, especially complex cases, can take years to resolve.

Moving to "whiter" Broward County has backfired in a most laughable fashion.

Sunrise's biggest attraction? A mall.

Miami? Well, just look up what's within 10 minutes of the AAA.
Sawgrass is an awesome outlet mall you must admit. Cheaper real estate in Sunrise. I think they were thinking of where their customers would be. Downtown Miami and its surrounding area isnt exactly a hockey crowd.

People are correct about the reporting, even legit reporters have no real idea whats going on, just a sources interpretation at best. And who knows how well the source is informed.

One says close and deal soon, another says wide gaps with small progress.

The one guy who everyone (99.9%) agrees is the most trusted source said "until whole deal is done, none of it is done."

I get it, we're close. I'm not gonna **** on anyone's parade here, but we've "been close" before. It's looking good, but you know what they say "fool me once..."

Call me when someone named Bettman, Daly or Fehr gives the thumbs up.

Well dalys quotes posted a few minutes ago were more positive then ever before, but again who knows what that means. They are on a tight deadline.

This is the confusing part..wtf is close? One min there are still issues, then it's not as productive as once thought, then it's it's close...I don't believe a word anyone is saying until there's a press conference.

They're close to choosing what toppings they want.

Everyone needs to breathe... this will get done. It might not get done in the time frame people enjoy but it will get done. No one is going to lose a season of the items that remain.

Also im not sure any of these guys have an idea as to what is being discussed. I dont think either side is leaking anything useful at this point. So all these random tweets about what has or has not been agreed upon are ridiculous. To me listening to Dreger/Mac/the french guy from RDS is your best bet. Neither of these guys are going to speculate and make up stuff for the sake of reporting.

Was there a lot of change in the standings last season from around the 48-52 game mark to the end of the season?

Its pretty simple.......the issues that remain arent really that big in the grand scheme of things (if the reporting is accurate).

This deal is long overdue, but both have been stalling with little in between them.

The PA spent all day Thursday fuming over a situation they created. Waste of a day.
