Until I hear Bettman say it I got to have some hope.

I know that, but the fact remains that they are both there...

Saskin can't do anything about cancelling the season, if he's with Daly it's about last-minute effort to get the deal.

What the hell would they need a federal mediator for if they were cancelling the season? Also, in what way is Saskin or any member of the PA leadership involved in the cancellation of the season.

It's the owners league, they can close it whenever they want.

I don't buy it one bit , why would both sides need to meet to cancel the season?

They know that if they met they could work out a deal no linkage , this is BS.

Is Fan590 online now? Or does it still not allow you to listen?

I'm not trusting anything right now until it's on either TSN or Sportsnet.

Fan 590 must be broadcasting some match right now. Are the Raptors playing at the moment?

And why would the NHL and Saskin be in Washington today, on a Sunday. How many federal mediators are going to go through the process on a Sunday? If the NHL has said it's "deadline" is Sunday night, it would make sense that they made it then in order to get any legal stuff done next week. I highly doubt that the NHL would be engaging themselves in that today rather than waiting by the phones for a call from the PA.

Besides, they have no rush to technically cancel the season once the deadline has passed, all Bettman has to do is come out and say see you in August...then the league has 5 months to get all the legal stuff done.

I read a story,yesterday i believe,that ended with a sentiment i agree with 100%.

It said "in the end both sides will get what they deserve".

Sportsnet owns The FAN590. Either that or they are partners, either way their sources are virtually the same.
