Would you take an offer seriously if just three hours ago your opposite negotiator said mediators were needed again?


If we were at an impasse over a single subject like contract length with no solution in sight...then sure. Why wouldn't you? Why is it "stalling tactics" whatever that means?

Yeah well if they're following the NBA script decertificaiton talk is next, then a deal but with the egos on the NHL side I wouldn't be surprised if they dared the NHLPA to follow through on decertification and nuked the season if not the league.

Fehr was spinning, something he said in the press conference must have pissed off the owners so they "took everything off the table". At least until tomorrow.

Regardless this certainly looks like the home stretch.

Agreed. People need to jump off the ledge. You dont agree on so many issues, then suddenly "pull everything off the table". We'll see a deal soon folks

Par for the course for this joke of a league and PA. If this season gets canceled, I hope they stay out for long enough to ruin Bettman, Fehr and these crybaby players.

Who said there was an agreement? The PA did, the league didn't. Obviously there was something in the PA's offer that caused a swift rejection, and Fehr knew it so he ran up to the press conference before that could happen to try to make a PR grab. This is just total amateur hour.

I can't wait for the league to say THIS offer was de-linked and that will never be accepted, I don't think that message has gotten through to Don yet. Maybe another ten rejections will get it through.

I can't make sense of what Bettman's talking about but he seems angry.

lol basically accusing the PA of shifting the goalposts...not surprising at all. Fehr doesn't want a deal, he just wants to unite the players in disdain for Bettman so he can start Global Thermonuclear War.

Apparently the NHL came up with an offer, where they offered to come down off various issues, if the NHLPA agreed to specific concessions.

The NHLPA then "cherry-picked" the elements the NHL came down off of, said the NHL wasn't pushing for them anymore and claimed in the media that they were close to a deal.

Regardless they do actually seem close to a deal to me. Hard to tell cause Bettman is so angry at Fehr's press conference he's not doing a great job articulating the differences.

They're not close now that make whole and other things are 'off the table'. Whether you want to believe it or not is one thing, the league clearly stated their offer was non-negotitable, Fehr called the league on it because their October offer was 'non-negotiable' too and the league acted like a five-year old taking their ball and going home. And Fehr acted like a weasel with that joke of a double press conference.

Haha, now the rhetoric comes out to play! Suicide bombers, the Hill we die on. This is just precious.


The league needs to explain why five years is a 'hill we die on'. Give numbers over how much money insurance on 5% of contracts cost you, maybe I'll listen.
