In response to SanDogBrewin's comment:
" I think it's frustrating for everybody and disappointing for everybody that's it's taken this long and we're still far apart, " Bettman said.
Informed of Bettman's comments, union head Donald Fehr said " my response is they seem to consider negotiating to be merely agreeing with them." " We've identified what's important to players, but they seem to be so far at least unwilling to treat those concerns in a serious way, " Fehr said.
I think it's funny that Fehr keeps talking like this. He never gives any specifics. "what's important to the players" could be just about anything under the sun.
I am beginning to doubt there will be a season this year. I am also going to laugh when the players sign next summer without the $211M available. Jokingly, I'd also like to see the owners get UFA status cranked back to 32 years old.
Money,money,money, thats all i want.Give me money,thats what i like.Money,money,money, thats what i need,give me money.Anyway i have to agree, its looking like no season, as i don't consider a 48 or 40 game schedule much of one. then you have only interconference play and if a team has a rough stretch there is no time for them to turn it around.One slump and done.
