We'll know when the lockout is over when the board crashes. Hopefully on December 4th.

I think this is the offer that got both sides negotiating against the same backdrop, instead of both using their own versions of what the core of the new CBA should be. Now they can really grind away on issues, instead of feeling like both sides are talking different languages.

Whatever happens I will not be the same fan as before this lockout. I puke just watching that smug **** Fehr and listening to Crosby and Richards with their "move in their direction" talking points. I will probably end up following Liverpool with more enthusiasm this season.

I don't trust either of them until this gets done. I've let my guard down a few times, and got burned already. I still think we'll have a season, but I can see it starting maybe mid January like last time(95) we had one, and didn't lose a whole season. We could probably still play 48 games like that year, and maybe 50 with the regular season ending around the 1st of May, and SCF ending end of June.

While I don't think the cancellation of the Winter Classic means no season like some, a lot of me still can't see us having a season before the date it was supposed to be played January 1st. If it can start my mid December or earlier I'd be ecstatic.

No progress. At this point I have no words. Both sides can f themselves.

According to Dreger

Quote:
Players won't be happy with how the league is responding to proposal. No meaningful give-backs according to PA source."Disappointing day."

The only direction the NHL and NHLPA are moving is apart.

NO PROGRESS IN CBA NEGOTIATIONS.

Everyone's favorite phrase again. I'm not bummed this time, because I wasn't expecting **** today.

This offer was better. I understand they don't want to accept the deal or anything but they could at least say "we aren't ready to accept a deal at this time but that is a proposal we could build off of" instead of "the deal was nothing close to what we want"

Still haven't heard the official NHL response, though. It's possible that Fehr is just amping up the dramatics... we've seen these see saw of emotions between the league & PA's responses before.

Saw this on twitter:
Ron Hainsey: Response wasn't rude, but it "wasn't what we in the room were looking for" either.

I have a feeling they're likely being held back by a couple owners right now. I'm sure that slimy POS HYPOCRITE Jacobs is leading the pack. He needs to rot. The nicest thing I can say about him is he needs to lose everything, and be forced to live on the streets, and sleep on a park bench for a bed.

I miss the Devils but I just feel separated from this league. Soccer is getting closer and closer to being my #1 sport. If I wasn't playing hockey in college, I would be completely disconnected from this sport.

Well I'm taking steps in your direction so naturally you should come 90% of the way to meet me. It's only fair.

Chris Botta ‏@ChrisBottaNHL
Bettman: "We're still far apart. But hopefully there's some momentum so we can bring this to a conclusion."

Renaud Lavoie ‏@RenLavoieRDS
Gary Bettman:"their was some movement in our direction and it was appreciated."


Not entirely promising, but not world ending either.
Inching there, ever so slowly

Moderates on both sides seem to be seizing a bit more control.
Time for them to start breathing fire on everyone else.

Come on man 90 percent of the way from me to Halifax is the Maine/Canada border! Looks like before you know it you'll be saying ''No progress in getting to Florida!''

So Bettman is cancer , Bettman is destroying nation , etc

These players and there garbage tweets further enforce the stereotype of them as spoiled idiots who lack any conception of real world

Wont be long until one of these millionaires threatens Bettman and his family ala Chelios
