This is an attempt to broker a deal for THIS season, something Bettman said wouldn't fly after the weekend.

It should be noted, for whatever it's worth, that USAToday's Kevin Allen is quoting a source "speaking on condition on anonymity" who said the rest of the 2004-2005 season will be cancelled on Wednesday, regardless of what happens in the Daly-Saskin meeting (http://www.usatoday.com/sports/hocke...-lockout_x.htm).

Also, Canadian Press is reporting the meeting today apparently "didn't solve anything," although they don't cite a reason for declaring that and noted the meeting was still ongoing (http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/artic...14_123026_5476).
First of all, if the season was definitely going to be cancelled, what would be the point of Daly and Saskin meeting tonight?!!?!? I don't buy what USAToday is spewing. Second of all, it may appear that the meeting hadn't solved anything, but how does sportsnet,Canadian Press, etc, really know that?!?!?!? They just ASSUME it! JMO!

May be overly optimistic, but perhaps something like this could be brewing. We do see some sort of breakthrough tonight which leads to an agreement. Bettman takes the stage on Wednesday to announce not only the cancellation of this season, but the signing of a new agreement for next season. Just occured to me, so I apologize if its been suggested before, or if its riddled with flaws. It would allow the league to have a full draft, and allow the teams to go about their regular off-season sposorship and season ticket drives.

Just reaching here. I've always been of the opinion that we wouldn't have a deal until a firm deadline was set, regardless of what the mainstream media suggested.

The change, it had to come
We knew it all along
We were liberated from the fold, that's all
And the world looks just the same
And history ain't changed
'Cause the banners, they are flown in the next war

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution

Pick up my guitar and play

No, no!

I'll move myself and my family aside
If we happen to be left half alive
I'll get all my papers and smile at the sky
Though I know that the hypnotized never lie
Do ya?

There's nothing in the streets
Looks any different to me
And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye
And the parting on the left
Are now parting on the right
And the beards have all grown longer overnight

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
Don't get fooled again
No, no!

Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss

Not inconceivable ... players would have to get some $$ for this season though.

Who's Next is a great great album, and still one can pick it up for 7.99 or the like, so I have found it makes for a nice little gift.

The best was watching him flash his ring last night, yeah, he did a whole lot to get THAT.
He deserved it more for what he did in the '93 playoffs then what he did riding the pine!

If Bettman were going to cancel the season, regardless of progress or no progress made tonight, I think that he would've just went ahead and cancelled it tomorrow. He wouldn't have moved the press conference up to Wednesday. He did that to see if any agreement could be reached tonight. Here's the key points of the sportsnet.ca article:

Initially a source said Bettman's announcement cancelling the season was set for Tuesday, but it was changed to Wednesday. It appears the reason was an unannounced meeting Monday between Bill Daly and Ted Saskin, the lead negotiators for the NHL and the NHLPA, a session confirmed by another source.

That's what I've been saying all along...No news = good news...

but I get my hopes up far too easily and get them shattered far worse each time...lol

I just don't understand how they couldn't just resign the current CBA with the intent to negotiate a new one to start the following season...

Stupid PA...stupid NHL....stupid everything and everyone and stupid waste of a day! VALENTINES DAY IS FOR THE WEAK!!!!....ok...I'm done now

Best bet is to get out and do something for a couple of hours. Come back, and you have a virtual flood of updates.
