Cancellation of the season as the sides are too far apart.

Well if it makes you feel better, the last season wasn't cancelled till February if I remember correctly. So there is still 2 months for them to figure things out.

Yes he is. Lavoie is the main insider for RDS, the French language TSN.

If there is a press conference tonight I can only imagine that it would be positive.....nothing like a deal has been reach, but maybe something along the lines that they are working together at trying to get a deal done.

Just following events on Twitter. No idea if they'll have a live feed. No time scheduled. But you dont set up a podium at 10pm unless its substantial news.

Agreed, they wouldnt just hold a conference to announce progress. Either its one of three things a) CBA deal is reached b) season is cancelled c) the NHLPA is decertifying and the season is done.

Based on the good progress I'm thinking its they've reached a settlement.

Doubt it. Bettmans already said today in his PC that progress is being made he wouldnt hold another one just to repeat what he has already said. Something big is going down and its one of three things a) CBA deal is reached b) Season is cancelled c) NHLPA is decertyifing.

Watch them be trolling and be like: "Sorry to rustle your jimmies, we're just setting up for our regular conference tomorrow afternoon."

Some guy on twitter is saying theres a rumour that a deal is done and the seasons going to be 56 games. Of course I don't believe it, only way I will is if a reliable guy like Bob Mackenzie, Darren Dreger or even a guy like Nick Kypreos reports it, until then a bunch of rumours.

It was said somewhere that to get sponsorship from television etc. the season had to be at least 62 games. Not sure why, but it was on the business board.

Here's a tweet from Bob Mackenzie as of 5 mins ago: "Two sides are talking on and off, it's called negotiating. Nothing else to report for now. If that changes, we'll pass it along. "

Sounds like its Nearing a done deal boys!

Players and owners have made leaps and bounds of progress from what I am hearing.

Seems like they have both given and taken this past few days and the ball is rolling! They still have some issues to iron out but at this rate lets hope the progres continues.

Should be under a 60 game season if this is completed soon.

A few overseas players have been notified that they may not be in Europe long if they can get past their last couple sticking points.
