Is The Glass Half Empty Or Half Full?

from Stu Hackel of the Red Light,

Should we be excited that the NHL and NHLPA are resuming negotiations again this week? In one sense, yes, of course, because there can be no end to this ill-considered lockout without talks. But let’s temper our excitement about the owners and players finally getting back on the right path. Until we get some sustained momentum from the CBA discussions, it’s foolish to think that we no longer have a long road ahead of us.  During the past two months, we’ve periodically had our hopes raised that good faith and reason were about to prevail and that hasn’t happened yet.

Sure, the secret talks at a secret location over the weekend produced heartening communiques from NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly and NHLPA special counsel Steve Fehr. “We had a series of meetings yesterday (Saturday) and exchanged views on the most important issues separating us,” wrote Daly in a Sunday morning email.”We plan to meet again sometime early this week.

Said Fehr: “Hopefully we can continue the dialogue, expand the group, and make steady progress.”

Yeah? And?
