I think I should just unfollow everyone in the hockey media on twitter for the rest of the lockout.

Getting close to being dragged into this awful roller coaster.

So we should have a pretty good indication if there will be hockey or not in this season in about the next 24-48 hrs, ya?

agree

So the owners came in with compromise on 'Make whole', and 5/7 on contract length, and wanted an instant agreement.
Hypothesis confirmed.

Why all the season lost talk? Still have all of December to negotiate.
Looks like this was just one of the points where owners lost money. First was winter classic, next was this 3/4 season for full sponsor money. What's the next cutoff point where owners actually lose dollars?

Seems like good news by all accounts.

How could they possibly blow a season over these remaining differences?

Ya if the season doesn't get started, one side or the other (read: owners) is intentionally tanking for a completely separate reason.

Also interesting that Glendale voted to keep Phoenix(or whatever happened there), and then all of a sudden talks get positive.

TSN comments have been interesting the last couple of months. Most people I talk to are anti both parties but in general more sympathetic to the players this lockout. TSN comments are overwhelmingly against the players.

Not that I've ever had much respect for the people that write TSN comments.
