Are The Two Sides Meeting Right Now? (2/15 @ 4pm)

Anyone have information on whether or not the two sides are meeting presently? This is killing me.

NHL has been highly highly secretive about their talks as of late, and no surprise they're being the same today. Likely they have met or are beginning too, or are on teleconference.

Luckily for me I have a game tonight so when I get home the whole mess should be figured out.

I thought I just saw on the Score that the NHL and NHLPA haven't even met yet today? They said Daly and Bettman are in NYC and Saskin and Goodenow are in T.O? Anybody hear this?

Yeah, I heard this too, but don't worry! They'll meet eventually, if they aren't already in secret..........

The mass media are reporting this, but they have been so terribly misinformed and led astray during this whole fiasco that it wouldn't surprise me the least if they had been meeting since 8:00am in Las Vegas.

They are going to meet, no doubt about it. If they dont, and let this season slide away, heads are going to roll.

I thought I read on another thread that they already met briefly and are going to meet again this afternoon (maybe by teleconference).

I expect them to have a lot of people working on this deal today to get it done tonight.

They dont need to meet in person. They've agreed on a system it's all about the numbers now. Something that can be done via teleconference. Plus i would get stick and tired of looking at Saskin all day if i was Daly and vise versa

This was a replacement post for his original "they started meeting at 11am" post. Funny, these posts were on the heels of Fan590 reporting same.

Pure conjecture by someone who knows nothing: they are meeting today.

I can't see how they are not.

so assuming that there is a season, what percentage of the players won't be able to return for the short season because of european/other contracts? anybody know? i don't feel like researching it right now.
