*Official* CBA Negotiations and Lockout Thread

"Term on contract limits is the hill we will die on"... Daly

Edit: Also sounds to me like things are getting to personal. It's why you hire a neutral party to handle negotiations. The owners had the feelings hurt and wanted to walk out of the room cause they didn't like the players response? That's what you call childs play.

How Gary Bettman still has a job is baffling. Good luck filling up your pockets when you cancel another season and treat hockey fans like pieces of crap!

Bettman confirms make whole payments off the table. That's $300 million.

Everyone, I told you so. There won't be a season this year. Now, watch this lockout to drag on for 2 seasons.

You've been informed.

Ya, never seen Gary like this. He's irrational and out of control. They better take a day to calm down before they make any decisions. Cause as it stands now, things will go nuclear.

"Were at a loss to explain what happened" - GB

What this really means is: I can't think of an excuse dumb enough to justify our stubbornness.

Edit:

"We keep giving and giving and giving"

Can someone please go up there and please explain to him that they have given nothing compared to the what the PA has

So the NHL's position on CBA length and contracting issues is "We'll only give you a 10 year CBA (which the players don't want) if you agree to everything else we say." Great deal!!

If Oct.11 was Bettman's "drop-dead date", then why did they start negotiating so late and low-ball the NHLPA with a horrendous initial offer?!?

Does he seriously believe that the owners have given "all they can give?" They literally have not made a single concession in the entire process. They want us to believe that paying contracts they've already signed is a concession. It's not. Good lord what a tool.

Bettman says the owners pushed hard on new deal last night. Bettman says union response last night was "shockingly silent."

Bettman says owners last night in room were beside themselves at the players' reaction.

Really thought crap was getting done when Fehr said there was an agreement in dollars.

The last few days have really turned my support against the owners and Bettman. I have no idea what concessions he thinks they've given, but I don't see them.

No idea what the frack happened, but it's clear now that there can't be a deal made for this season. I didn't think there was going to be one anyway, but the false hope we received today kind of pisses me off.
