I agree LeBrun's tweet was a bit of a downer but the key is they are still meeting. This thing is a grind. Its two sides fighting tooth and nail for everything they can get out of the other side. Both sides know the time is short.
Donald fehr was severely disappointed that ihops "breakfast nazi"(his words, not mine) of a server brough him banana pancakes. Fehr claimed that it was an outrage and anything other than plain pancakes was "riff raff" and "unnecessary". Not looking good folks.
Oh wait, he's going to eat them anyway. Stay tuned
jeebus people. Considering we're hearing barely anything, and can only speculate on what figures are being exchanged.. we shouldn't be making any assumptions until words come from bettman or fehr's mouth
