Tsn.ca is a little confusing.

The National Hockey League will conduct a news conference with Commissioner Gary Bettman on Wednesday at 1pm et from New York where it is expected he will officially cancel the 2004-05 regular season and playoffs. TSN has learned that NHL executive VP Bill Daly and NHLPA senior director Ted Saskin met Monday at an undisclosed location in a last-ditch attempt to save the season.

so is the meeting over? how do you guys know they are still meeting as of 9:30? It would seem that the meeting is over

As well as LeClair's Phantom Goal and (of course) Wide Right. Ah, it's good to be a Buffalo sports fan!

John Davidson on MSG-immense pressure on both sides,fairly decent # for salary cap,linkage slightly taken off the table,JD is "optimistic" more optimistic than he has been in a long time,the league called the PA,huge pressure by the players on the PA,bottom/floor of the cap with the big market teams helping the smaller revenue teams reach the floor,both sides are moving

Welcome to the board, Sabres phan.

Heres a tip though: Getting praise from Reilly is NOT a good thing. Hes on most people's iggy lists in here. Sorry to say.

But, yes, I too felt your pain for the Music City Miracle (aka. The Immaculate Deception)

Nah, TSN has been referring to the meeting in past tense terms since it began.........

I dont think the Tuesday/Wed deadline is just thrown out there to get some urgency. I dont think one day is more important than the other.

As far as how people know how long they have been negotiating....the have been keeping us posted in between periods during the AHL all star game.

They are still meeting... Because TSN took a break at 8pm saying its still on, when it had on their website, "They met" (past tense)..

Yep, whenever the two sides meet, TSN always refers to the meetings in past tense terms. It can get confusing at times.......

Wow, you are not nice.

Sabres Phan, make your own opinions of people here. It's better to see what people are like than getting opinions from others. Welcome to the board!

nor is Reilly on mine...although some of his comments sure do piss me off....but hey...everyone is entitled to their opinion...

I still don't understand why the previous CBA could not have simply been re-signed and play while negotiating a new one to take place next year...anyone have any reasoning as to why they may not have done this!?! Would it NOT have kept us happy!?!? And isn't it honestly about US!?!

They probably were watching the allstar game and having some beer before Goodenow and Bettman started arguing over some stupid irrelevant thing.

j/k

I think something will be settled. If not, it will be because of a fluke and something unexpected happening. I think that its possible that a deal is already done and we're waiting on final approval.

Anybody watching SportsNet? They reported that Bettman has been working the phones all day, and they seem pretty optimistic...........

That offside call from 1980 still kinda bugs me.

Welcome to the boards. Don't worry, you'll see a thread about the Sabres No-Goal if you stick around long enough.

I would say that they speculated that Bettman had been working the phones, they did not really have solid back ups, but it was logical.

I enjoyed Kypreos' newfound stance, he's backed down a bit.
