Read this article, it is these most detailed one I have seen yet. It clearly paints a picture of the NHLPA giving up all the concessions...

And that's why so many fans -- but not all -- have been on the players side. Anyone following the talks on a semi-daily or weekly basis could see that the players have been making most of the concessions.

I don't think most fans side with the players at all, I think most are just anti-Bettman more than anything else - and with good reason since he's the lockout commissioner (though I don't think hockey fans who are baseball fans have any great love for Fehr either). Most of HF is as pro-owner as this place is pro-player ironically, so it's hardly unanimous. I fall in the camp of 'a pox on both their houses' and I think a lot of people do too.

Besides, until recently - two and a half months into 'talks' - the players weren't conceding anything. And when they finally did make concessions, they blew up a grenade in their own hand with Fehr's press conference PR stunt.

Great, looks like the players are moving forward. This is getting really close to 1/11/13 quasi season deadline.

@JSportsnet
NHLPA will begin voting tomorrow to give Exec Board authority to file a disclaimer of interest. Players will vote for 5 days via internet.

Retweeted by Spector's Hockey



@JSportsnet
NHLPA Exec Board requires a positive vote of 2/3rds of the members to be able to act, and then has until Jan 2/13 to file notification.

January 2, eh? Looks like the players are setting their own drop-dead date before the league sets it for them :P

Of course a deal would happen much sooner if the DOI somehow got voted down, then the players would really have to come crawling to the owners.

Why would that be true? How have things changed if the DOI fails? They're in the same place. Again, all the NHL has to do to end this charade is give a little bit, unless they think Fehr is completely bluffing and is going to keep asking until he's run out of time.

No hockey gives me more time to read a book instead.

Ah, me too! I'm in the middle of reading my 5th book since the end of October....and I never read. So basically this lockout is changing me into a different person. But seriously, this needs to end. It's stupid. It's embarrassing And they are only hurting themselves. Us fans choose to go to games or not. We choose on deciding whether or not to spend money on them. In my opinion, this lockout is hurting the league more ways in one.

We all just want one thing, yet it is so hard and frustrating to accomplish.

Hope a deal will be struck soon. :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray:

Haha. I watched my brother play this weekend. Though he only allowed 2 goals, it was unfortunately on maybe 6 shots, lol. Kinda wanted to see my brother play goal rather than skate in circles bored, then watch him look like he wanted to kill someone after whiffing on a glove save. Nothing better than seeing a 9 year old kid fuming mad about winning by 7 goals, lol.

No NHL logo NHLPA logo stuff for Christmas this year, I was going to buy a authentic jersey " Kovy" what also bums me out is this really screws our one player who never asked for much and played his heart out. If they cancel the season I do not see Marty coming back I know he signed for 2 yrs but with a 1 year layoff at his age I see him hanging em up and the number going to the rafters. I really hate to see him go out like that!

I thought Marty signed for two years specifically so he can play again in case there was a lockout.

Here's something that's getting way too much attention, getting blown out of proportion because of the lockout. But I chuckled nonetheless. Can't imagine the players at the next PA meeting will be happy about this one.

If you're so stupid that you want to let the world know you have more cash on you than a bank teller, well, I won't feel bad if a bank robber decides he's gonna branch out into B&E just for you.

Agree, getting blown way out of proportion. Until every TWENTY YEAR OLD hockey fan can honestly say they don't post stupid pics of themselves or their cars (referencing the Derek Roy hubbub) on Twitter or Facebook, then I'll expect the players to cool it down.

That being said, I've always known Evander Kane was a douchebag, too many stories coming out about him; would hate to be his teammate.

How members of the PA reacted when they heard Kane was about to cause a heap of bad press for their cause.
