    I knew better than to get my hopes up after Tuesday's meetings. It's embarrassing to be an NHL fan sometimes. Even if the CBA does get settled, it's frustrating to know that within 5-7years we'll be stuck right back in another lockout.

    Comcast Sports Boston- Ryan Miller and Jeremy jacobs got into a heated discussion. Jacobs is not well recieved in Boston, even with a recent cup.
    No deal.

    It's amazing to see how the lockout can shift so suddenly like a yo-yo. I watched Don Fehr last night make his first speech about how well negotiations have progressed and how close the two sides are. Feeling optimistic (again), I turned off the tv as I was getting ready to head out and then see posts on Twitter from the media saying that he is coming back to the podium. So I decide being a few minutes late won't hurt and Fehr says that the NHL left a voicemail and the NHL isn't happy and that everyone can pack their bags and leave New York.

    After reading a few articles, from what I understand the NHL and the owners made a big push Wednesday night to get a deal done. If I'm reading into the owner's actions correctly, I think yesterday they were trying to send a message to the players by catching flights out of New York yesterday morning since a deal wasn't made the night before when they met. I also believe I read that Bettman wasn't wasn't involved in one of the meetings that were held later on yesterday as well. So with many of the owners having already left town and possibly Bettman missing the meeting, how would this be good for negotiations? I now wonder if the NHL is just playing games by giving the players a chance to get a deal done on Wednesday and now they retract their offers and wait another week or two before they all meet again.

    Another thing that boggles my mind is: how the heck does Jeremy Jacobs seem to have so much pull with the negotiations? He should only be 1/30 of the vote and yet guys like Mark Chipman are told to ride in the back seat and shut up (which they tried to cover up a week ago).
    Collecting: auto's and game used patches of Jari Kurri, Grant Fuhr, Paul Coffey and other 80's Oilers. Also looking Ed Belfour autos. For all players, it doesn't matter what team they are shown with.

    Bettman was some kind of angry there eh?
    Bettman is one of the leagues highest paid "players", of course he was mad about losing more pay cheques.

    Length of service. He's been on the board of governors since the 1970's. He represents an Original Six team, one that brings in a lot of $$$ for the League. He's been a hard-liner who has consistently pushed for ownership to get as large a piece of the pie as it can, and because of that he's pretty popular with that inner circle. All of that adds up, even though he represents the "old guard"/"old boys club" that a lot of people would like to see go by the wayside along with Don Cherry and other dinosaurs.

    I think Bettman is dumber. Fehr has never lost, and he'd never resort to THE BIG SNIT like Gary just did.

    Um, yeah Fehr has never lost...so if he "wins" again, the New York Rangers will be the next Yankee's and buy Weber and Nash and whoever they want for 20 M per, while 6 other teams fold, and only another 6 have a legitimate chance at winning the cup, year after boring year....Fehr Wins, but the NHLPA Loses 180 jobs, the NHL Loses its appeal, and the fans are treated to a bore fest like MLB.
    I would be seriously pissed too...Fehr is a blatant liar who only cares about an "ego victory" at the expense of Everyone else!

    Fehr is not the one that threw a CHANK, Bettman did. He needs to grow-up and put on his Big-Boy Panties.

    So, your saying the guy who is better at being emotionless is "the man"...sociopaths are excellent at showing 0 emotion because they have none ( no conscience) . My point, Fehr could care less about hockey what so ever, meanwhile, if showing passion and emotion is a sign of weakness, than Every player in the NHL must be wearing panties under their gear.
