He's not getting fired over that and the only reason it is getting attention is because we've finally reached the desperation point of the first Monday in December.
He said significant process was made through a secret meeting with an announcement coming as soon as tomorrow.

How is that a small rumor? secret meetings with 'significant progress' are a huge reason to get optimistic and should be confirmed or denied

It's all clear to me now.

A football guy plants fake optimistic news about the NHL, so when no progress is made, fan apathy is even greater and NFL can cement their position as the biggest sport while NHL becomes a marginal sport.

Et tu, Burton

I don't think so, because he knows, I am pretty sure I know, and many of my buds from the area who follow all things Bruins and know Burton his source is Jacobs Senior. So if it goes down the toilet its because Jacobs was probably dillusional with the ending mood today, but...I think they like a marriage with some issues, both sides want and need each other and will do there best in the next 48 hours to play December hockey.

agree ...only really news is that they had a high level meeting on Monday...

as for the ...could have a agreement or news release seems like speculation to me.

Winnipeg Jets return, broken by Stephen Brunt, while TSN shows a clip of Darren Dreger's stunned 1000 yard stare.

Many are saying it's too late to keep this lockout from causing catastrophic damage to the league. Now, if I were in Bettman or Fehr's position (and I'm not), and I was the devious type (which I might be), I'd definitely attempt to engineer an end to this thing that leaves both the players and owners as close to smelling like roses as they'll get, so as to entice those doubtful fans to return to - and spend money on - my league again.

... Like, say, announce a high-profile "players and owners only" meeting; set the thing up slowly and loudly so the fans' attention is fully on said meeting; broker a season-saving deal before said meeting even starts; then announce the deal a day or two after that, all the while saying the meeting was the catalyst and giving the players and owners all the credit.

Maybe the Public Relations guys are actually doing something, besides dating all the hot girls on staff and having long lunches!

Especially Rosen, he tweets about football and other sports stuff, and nothing from him.

Where there's smoke there's fire, I suppose.
If the TSN guys knew it to be false they would have squashed it long ago. My guess is they have been trying to dig up info all night.

Steve Burton broke Kessel's cancer and Thomas' hiatus. Haggs wishes he could hold Burton's jock. He covers football but he knows his hockey. Burton is the best sportscaster in Boston IMO.

Dreger, Bobby Mac and Lebrun are silent because they are gathered together and plotting a kidnapping of Burton so he keeps his mouth shut.

Also as far as guys like Boyes and such denying it.. if these were secret meetings they probably wouldnt tell players... He'd probably bring them the deal at the end. Ultimatley if Fehr says a deal is good, they will take it. The players have big mouthes.

Hags probably just mad that a guy who doesn't cover NHL has better sources than he does.

CSNNE.com checked in with a source on the report amid the current state of negotiations – with a group of players and six NHL owners set to sit down for a meeting in New York City on Tuesday afternoon – and was told Burton’s report was “interesting, but not true.”

Well he's saying his sources are saying it's not true. Same thing as Burton, essentially.


This will be fascinating if true.

Wait he has sources?

Brad Boyes should keep his mouth shut since he was part of the group that ousted Paul Kelly.
