Steve Burton locked the doors and is holding them at gun point. He won't allow the sides to leave w/o a deal in place. This was his ace in the hole.

They've caused too much damage to the product. I'll never buy another ticket or tee shirt again. Shame on all of you who enable this type of behavior.

Both Fehrs, Don and Steve, have been on phone calls the last few minutes.

They're going to continue to meet tonight.

Cautiously optimistic.

TSN reports on home page that Gary Bettman is holding a press conference at 1PM tomorrow after Board of Governors meeting.

Bring it home!

Thank you!

Cautiously optimistic with the info being leaked tonight. In the meantime, I'm enjoying the rewatch of the 8-1 pasting of the Nucks in Game 3 on NESN. And I love that WBG has her Horty Christmas avi up again!

My friend who's a die-hard hockey fan just texted me saying they had a deal.

I think my heart stopped, I may or may not have fallen out of my chair trying to type NHL.com as fast as I could, and then he told me he was joking.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

Hopefully we don't have to wait much longer for one... I kept my emotions in check and have stayed so pessimistic up until now, (I've tried so that if the season got cancelled I wouldn't be disapointed, I'm not a scrooge ) hopefully it was worth it... Because I'm never expecting the worst ever again.

No problem. Trinity is awesome too, right across from the Dunk. Amazing beer, really good wings too.

Bettman and Fehr are apparently joining in...

I'd be lying if I said my heart didn't stop. I hope this all doesn't go to ****.

They have to meet again sometime. Might as well be now than later. It would be absolutely awful if those two ruined absolutely everything and put the sides a step apart again.

I think it will be better to see Dreger/MacKenzie/whoever's explanation of why a Boston-based football reporter predicted the end of the 3 month lockout, rather than one of them who's job it is to report and cover it.

Now it appears both Gary Bettman and Donald Fehr will be joining tonight's meetings.

I wish Jim Ross and Jerry the King were commentating.

I still believe there will be a season, haven't lost faith. Dont really understand the notion of "just cancel it already" or "well it won't even be a real season"

As a bruins fan, no season means Chara is a year older. As a hockey fan, no season just sucks in general

We'll have hockey by the end of December.

I just hope that both sides come to their senses tonight and we get to see some B's hockey this year!! This is the most hope I've had in a while. Of course that probably means we're SOL.
