Information Gathering Continues Today

via TSN,

The NHL and the NHL Players' Association have resumed information sessions this morning in New York to continue considerations of the Owners' latest CBA proposal.

The league and players spent most of Saturday in conference calls and discussions regarding the 288-page document that the NHL presented on Thursday.

According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, there will be three information sessions held today that are required to complete the assessment of the proposal. There is a chance that formal bargaining could follow, but there is no guarantee that will happen.

I’m really amused by all of the “hockey media” falling over each other to proclaim the lockout is already over.  There’s zero evidence this CBA proposal will be any better received than previous proposals.  The only reason the two sides are even talking again is that both sides realize that there is no next week for the 12-13 season.  Neither side wants to be seen as the party that refused to negotiate as the final axe was falling on the season.  I personally have very long little faith that the season can be saved at this point.  Since it’s new years I’ll be extremely generous and say the chances are about as good as the New York Giants have of making the playoffs going into this morning’s games.

Go Giants….

Paul, no league is better at scraping together a half-season at the last second as the NHL (no, that’s not a compliment).

Fehr and Bettman are egomaniacs, but they’re not stupid.

Thankfully, in three weeks time we’ll be posting about the night’s game between our teams and their opponents.

Our nightmare is almost over.

you are more than likely correct here. But at the same time I still cannot bring myself to thinking we will have our hockey back. Too many ups and downs on this damned roller coaster for me to give in yet.
