    Rumor has it that the strike has ended. 56 games in the works.

    Not confirmed, but I heard this leak.?????

    I have my news radio channel on and I heard that number tossed around as well. Not confirmed but the season would start around the 27th of December. As much as I disagree with the lockout, I am SO ready to have hockey back. As my siggie says, GO JETS GO!

    I hope so. If they can't resolve it now, may as well just dissolve the league, why keep going round and round. Enough already, drop the puck!

    I have tsn on, checking my twitter feed, checking the main canadian sports websites, and I haven't seen a hint of the lockout ending rumour other than here on the dis. :(

    I was doing the same thing after m-sita's post. Constantly refreshing yahoo sports and tsn.ca while keep "last channel"ing between nesn and nhl network.

    I did put the ?, because it was a text I received from someone who SHOULD be in the know. However, it doesn't always pan out, as we all know.

    Time will tell. I can just picture all the refreshing and clicking..LOL

    Bob McKenzie ( TSN) is tweeting that the room and surrounding area have gone silent. No leaks, which should indicate things are going well. My fingers are crossed there is news when I wake up tomorrow morning.

    You just know that if this works Bettman will be taking all the credit since he suggested he butt out along with Fehr. To me, it just shows what the problem was in the first place.

    Seriously. There are no words appropriate ANYWHERE for that man. He needs to go, and quickly.

    My good friend does the equipment to/fro the airport for the Canadians, as well as the opposing teams. He was to leave for Florida on the 29th, and he JUST got told to cancel his trip.

    I follow a reporter on Twitter who covers the Red Wings (even though I'm a Sabres fan) and she just tweeted that a deal is not imminent though much progress has been made.

    We really can't read into things at this point. We don't want to get our hopes up.

    That being said..

    WOOHOOOOOOO

    That is all : P

    Every party has a pooper, that's why we invited you!

    I'm totally just kidding with you. I know we've been close before, but this time feels different.

    It looks like they are close, and I have a feeling we'll be getting some good news very soon. My only question is, why weren't they this determined and driven back in September when they could've saved not only the season, but a lot of good will too?

    :lmao:

    Honestly though, in a weird way, I almost hope they don't come to an agreement, because I want to stay angry at them. If they come back, and then I come back as a fan, I'll feel like I've been played or taken advantage of. Does that make sense on some strange level? :rotfl2:

    The 56-game figure was definitely thrown out there - Bettman needs to have some sort of schedule in place. In case a settlement is reached, they don't have much time to get the ball rolling. My cousin is in the ownership group for the Pens, nothing has been settled, no agreement has been reached - yet. Mario Lemieux says he's willing to stay in NY until they have an agreement, and Sid does like rainbow chocolate chip cookies:love:

    I really hope they end this lockout soon. Without my precious bruins I've been forced to watch football. :eek: if you knew me youd be equally terrified :rotfl:
