from Elliotte Friedman of CBC,
Still waiting for official NHLPA reaction from Saturday's marathon meetings between Bill Daly and Steve Fehr, but here are a couple thoughts on what's probably going on:
When it comes to lawyers, you must be careful about using the word "offers." It's possible no official offers were presented. But, what these two often do is say, "If we proposed this, what would your side think?" or something along that line. So, what you can expect is that Daly and Steve Fehr went through a lot of that, trying to see how far their adversary is willing to go and what really are the cornerstone issues here.
It's the next meeting that's going to be critical.
Why? As I checked Sunday morning, there weren't a lot of details available (if any) to those who were outside the meeting. Over the next 24-48 hours, both the NHL and NHLPA are going to digest what happened and send updates to their constituents. That will determine the true tone of where we are and whether any real traction was made. Once the players and governors get their memos and begin to react, strategy for the next get-together will be shaped.
