Listening to the players, I get the feeling we are not as close to the end as we all have hoped. It seems that the players are willing to turn in their Hockey uniforms to talk numbers like a stockbroker which would keep talks at a stand still. Everything that has happen thus far can be blamed on both side being stubborn but, now that the NHL has made a real offer it gave the fans hope that's the season wasn't lost and their is still a good chance. However, the reaction from the players on the offer is less than encouraging.
Tomorrow we will know for sure after they meet in Toronto. all we can do is sit and wait and hope for the best.
