I was listening to the Blue Lunch radio show on TSN 1050 Toronto a while ago. The guest on there said that the owners have told bettman that the cancellation of the season is an unacceptable option. That means there will be about 2 weeks of back and forth amongst the sides, and fehr with quite a bit of leverage...assuming all of this is true. My hopes still aren't raised though.
And this just in from Boston: http://nesn.com/2012/12/report-nhl-o...ptable-option/

I was referring to people who say the NHL and the owners don't settle, don't negotiate (despite the fact that every offer that got closer to what NHLPA wants was in fact negotiating/settling), etc. etc., but a nice gif you have there anyway!

From everything I've seen that seems to be the case. As I said before, I think there is going to be a season. This is going to go down to the wire and slowly but steadily the PA's position will keep improving. They will reach an agreement at the last possible minute. The owners are in a bad place now, it really feels like they have gotten to a place where they are negotiating against themselves.

Well, the owners keep blinking... Fehr is certainly doing his job in getting the owners to bargain against themselves.

When you consider how much the PA has been losing every day, will any "gains" really be worth the losses?

I am not nearly as knowledgeable about the negotiations but it seems to me they are close on a lot of issues.From what I read today in this new proposal they were putting the 300 million back on the table.I hope the PA accepts this.Let's play hockey

I was surprised to see the $300M back on the table, but at this point, I don't give an eff what it takes.
