Assuming the new disclaimer vote passes and they decide to use it today, what happens with Bettman? Would he no longer represent the owners and be removed from the process immediately, or what happens? With lack of CBA, wouldn't the owners be free to speak out (without fear of million dollar fines)? Seriously, I'd like to know. Can you imagine the gong show if the owners were allowed to start slinging mud at each other openly in the media?! This could be an exciting weekend for hockey. *grabs popcorn*

Oh, is someone playing hockey this weekend?

If the owners drop the gloves with each other, that would count, no?

Keep hearing/reading sense of energy/optimism around today's CBA talks in NYC. Agent: "teams are gearing up, feels like it will be a go."

Let's here some more positive tweets:

‏@garylawless
Multiple sources - CBA talks picking up pace - still issues but appear solveable - players pushing for a deal #NHL

@Ledger_NJDevils
Sounds promising for NHL settlement very soon

@ChrisBottaNHL
NHL deal edging closer. Hurdles left that will need some time, but you can plan on the season starting in 2 weeks. @SBJSBD

@DavidAlter590
Growing sense of optimism here in the hotel that there will be progress today.... AND.....we wait. #CBA

@MolinariPG
Great to hear all the excitement coming out of New York. Pretty sure this is the first time anyone has thought a CBA deal might be close.

@nhlupdate
Early indication is that the biggest movement to happen today could be on the 2013-14 salary cap. I don't think it's at 60M and 65M anymore

Told the pension issue was resolved a while ago. For all you Actuaries....it will be a Defined Benefits pension, funded by the players.

@JSportsnet
Told that while major pension issue is resolved still some point to be worked out to make system work.

Matt Duchene, Cory Schneider To Return To North America Early Next Week

Granted their contracts were purposely meant to expire around the drop dead date.
