I'm just a poor schmuck with no connections whatsoever so you don't need to listen to me. Though I really think there will be one more blowup, and one more free fall drop before this is done.

Be forewarned.

Wonder if Fehr has a disclaimer letter in his jacket pocket, ready to hand to Bettman on his way out the door.

Custance:One source thinks eagerness for $60 million cap next season by some teams as much an effort to dilute talent as it is to save money.
Interesting, seems like owners vs owners is popping up again

This this this this this.

Seriously, it's been this the whole time. All we know is that both sides are meeting for a long time tonight. Until we hear press conferences when it's done, none of us know anything.

If they institute a $60 million cap they may as well call it what it is - a dispersal draft.

If a season gets canned, theoretically, because of pension issues that's just too much

Come on, players, you can't lose a season over pension.

There's no way this season is cancelled over pension plans. It doesn't make any sense for either side, and was never was this battle was for.

Friends, we must not fight amongst ourselves but band together to fight the good fight.

One does not simply argue amongst each other about the NHL lockout.

This is going down to the end, don't expect a deal for at least another week. Both sides know they have until ~the 11th, and they're going to use that time.

IF PENSIONS issues are holding up this deal, then shame on them. Then again.. if pension deals are holding this up right now... well it gets done.

Here you have the Owners trying to sell a 52 game season to the PA so they get a few games extra worth of salary and the PA trying to squeeze a few extra concessions out of the Owners. This is the artificial deadline, the real deadline is less than 2 weeks away. Try not getting yourselves emotionally attached from the start

As per TSN sportscentre update:

"Not a whole lot to smile about"

"League waiting for response"

"Players dug in a little bit today. Both sides feeling a bit frustrated."

If I can't pension, I can't pension man. If I'm hurt, I'm hurt. I mean ... simple as that. It aint about that... I mean its... Its not about that... At all. You know what I'm saying I mean...
But its...its easy ... to, to talk about... It's easy to sum it up when you're just talking about pension. We're sitting in here, and I'm supposed to be the franchise player, and we in here talking about pension. I mean, listen, we're talking about pension, not a game, not a game, not a game, we talking about pension. Not a game. Not, not ... Not the game that I go out there and die for and play every game like it's my last. Not the game, but we're talking about pension, man. I mean, how silly is that? ...

Exactly, might stumble for a little bit, but seriously guys, this is getting done.

No mention of big issues like contracts, it's all cap and pension talk right now.

Obviously the Kyper tweet backs up the LeBrun tweet. LeBrun had the fastest fingers here.
