    Fehr and Daly meeting at an undisclosed location today

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports...urday/1678535/

    On the day that the league canceled its premier regular-season event, the NHL and NHL Players' Association decided to get back together.

    Deputy commissioner Bill Daly and NHL Players' Association special counsel Steve Fehr will meet Saturday in an undisclosed location.

    I am actually more optimistic than last week.

    Hey, minutes later, whaddayaknow:

    @DarrenDreger: I'm certain of this, based on number of texts received from players. They want a deal and want their leadership to focus on getting it done.
    @DarrenDreger: Not to say the players are caving...they're not, but they want focus to remain on negotiations and away from petty memos to media.

    That's the right attitude.

    Call me crazy, but I think something gets done this week. I don't think this is the end, but I think we'll be nearing it after this week.

    According to Pierre LeBrun, Daly and Fehr are still talking after a whole afternoon of meetings.

    I think they'll open on Thanksgiving if anything happens this week. If not, December 1st.

    If we don't play this season at all, I think that's a tremendous loss for the Rangers personally. We have a prime 2-3 year window, and will be missing out on a full one of those years.

    However, even though a Cup would come with an asterisk if we won in an abbreviated season, I think a shortened season would actually help us. We'd have Gaborik back for almost the entirety of the season, and Henrik/the rest of the team won't be nearly as gassed for the playoffs with two full months of play taken out. We all saw how we were running on empty. If the players are staying in shape, an abbreviated season could work to our benefit. The young guns won't take as long to get going as some of the older veterans on other teams, and we should be healthy/well-rested.

    Meeting between SFehr and BDaly done. Not really any progress to report. Have agreed to meet again, but nothing scheduled.

    Somewhat impressed that it has lasted this long and that no info has been leaked.

    There is zero info, except for the fact they are meeting again early next week.

    Good, the moment they stop spinning and their PR talk, the more chance we get somewhere.

    More reason for optimism?

    @adater:
    Miracle alert: I'm told by usually skeptical people that some real progress was actually made late last night in NHL lockout talks
    Still got to get down to "nitty gritty" though
    He's been pretty pessimistic throughout too.
