He wasn't cut. He stepped down. He did all he could to turn that club into a contender.

You'd think he would be highly sought after. But Columbus?

I'm not going to get excited until its official this time, as far as I'm concernd there won't be hockey this year.
Still hold that against EJ...man was that crushing how he got my hopes up.

I don't even think about the playoffs when I'm watching the regular season games. I have fun watching for the game-to-game enjoyment factor that I get from following my favorite (and only) sports team.

Couple tweets over the past couple hours:

Darren Dreger ‏@DarrenDreger
Marathon in Manhattan continues. Told lots of caucusing (good word) and the bargaining process remains strong.

Pierre LeBrun ‏@Real_ESPNLeBrun
Talks still ongoing. From NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly via email, "Still lots of issues unresolved."

Nick Kypreos ‏@RealKyper
On contract variance #NHL offered 30% yr to yr but kicker is no yr can be less than 60% of the highest salaried year. #NHLPA wants wider gap


And I absolutely never post anything eklund says, in fact this will be the only time just because he has a "couple" philly sources, and that's still pushing it but just for fun:

Hockey Buzz Eklund ‏@Eklund
Told the cap next season will be 63. Not 100%, but I have from multiple sources.,,I would say almost 100% that 63 is the number.

So now we know for a fact that the cap will NOT be $63.

Where did this 60% limitation come from? That's pretty restrictive. Next the league will offer 50% yearly variance but require that no year can be less then 70% of the highest salaried year. lol

So what does that mean? The salary can't change from one year to the next by more than 30%, and that the lowest can't be more than 60% off from the highest?

Example for bolded part: If a player gets paid $1,000,000 in year 1, the least he could get paid in year 2 is $700,000?

sounds like they're still going at it:

John Shannon ‏@JSportsnet
That said, the two sides have spent time together thru process today/tonight/this morning.

Nick Kypreos ‏@RealKyper
For those asking @DougMaclean and I are not thinking of hosting a HC@noon 2am addition anytime in the near future.

from within the past half hour

At least they're having fun with it:

Nick Kypreos ‏@RealKyper
Shoot, sorry I'm missing it. U the goalie? "@SunGarrioch: @ian_mendes @michaelgrange @LouisJean_TVA Playing ministicks in the hallway"

From Millard's twitter page within last half hour:

John Shannon ‏@JSportsnet
Hearing 13 hour session has been more typical mediation, rather than face to face talks.Mediator moves between groups with concepts.

Daren Millard ‏@darenmillard
Good news for those waiting for the bargaining session to end. The@nhl will be speaking when the talks end for the night/morning.


Speaking with a podium?

10Pm what time zone? It's more of mediation right now, rather than face to face. But that isn't a bad thing.

I'm I Hawaii (Maui) for work. It's been a very rough week weather/work wise... It would be nice to hear hockey is back... Would make everything else seem ok.

Pierre LeBrun ‏@Real_ESPNLeBrun
Mediator still in meeting but told he's not playing as much of an active role right now.

Pierre LeBrun ‏@Real_ESPNLeBrun
I'm so tired I fell asleep while standing up an hour ago in the TSN satellite truck.

Daren Millard ‏@darenmillard
Playing stick ball on 6th ave. Just hit a long ball and a cop stopped. Turned on his siren and said through the speaker, home run! Classic

Nick Kypreos ‏@RealKyper
This is what its down to for us waiting for #NHL #NHLPA #knuckleheads to come to their senses. 6th Ave stickball @ 3am pic.twitter.com/tBOX7UMD


Pretty funny actually. The photo on Kyper's twitter is funny.

I wonder who's there for the NHLPA currently. Richards is pulling an all nighter possibly.

Can't believe this... Sounds like they're hell bent on getting 50. Mayb it becomes 48 with 2 pre-season games. That would help everyone.

I had a feeling it was in the Hawaii area. Had work until late and I don't fall asleep easy as it is. Figured I'd might as well follow along and watch Archer.

I'm just watching re-runs on netflix. Getting caught up after all my attention was on The League.

I gotta hand it to Kypreos, Millard, Lebrun, etc for staying awake through this. They really want to hear what has to be said at the end of this. They seem giddy like little kids on christmas day.
