Well, those media reports jumped the gun a little bit by suggesting both sides were going to agree to 45 mil, Bill Daly was quoted as saying they didn't agree to a tentative deal at all.
Still, both sides are meeting in New York City and the satellite trucks are all set for the big press conference expected to come later tonight when Gary Bettman announces a deal is done and he uncancels the season. Not in attendance at the negotiating table, we are told, is Bob Goodenow, who is being frozen out, for what reason we do not have a clue. There are actually a few rumors going around that he may soon be fired, but that's all rumor. And we are told that Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux are there.
I'll break in to let you know if these clowns finally did come up with their deal to save the season.
