Please let Hockey Futures board crash!!

I personally don't think anything will come of the meeting other than finality that there will be no season BUT I am very much hoping I'm wrong. Maybe just maybe, both sides ave realized that a canceling of the season would be disastrous for the league. Check that, they both KNOW, lets just hope they both care enough to do something about it.

Anyway, I keep hoping that when I come to check the boards, they will have crashed because everyone rushed on to talk about the CBA deal that was just struck!!! So c'mon HF...CRASH BABY!!! CRASH!!!!

Something will leak, however the longer we hear nothing, the better I would say.

EDIT: After all, how long did the 11th hour talks last the last time they had them? I heard an entire weekend...maybe that's the plan?

I don't think we'll hear any official announcements tonight but if the season gets saved I would expect to see a small article by TSN or someone stating something like "A new deal was struck between the NHL and the NHLPA, details to be released at press conference tomorrow." Followed by some speculation as to what the actual deal includes by a reporter and several sources.

CRASH BABY!!! BRING IT DOWN!!!

Considering the post in the "Fan 590" thread that the talks are done for the day, the crash may happen.

I am having trouble every 4 or 5 links.

haha Well atleast I can take heart in the fact that I created a unique thread!

Normally I would hope for the opposite too but not this time. This time I want it brought to it's knees. I want so much traffic not even "Gene" could prevent a crash and the only thing that would bring such traffic is knowledge of a new CBA!!
