As you may already know both sides met for about an hour yesterday evening, this time with Commissioner Gary Bettman and Union Head Donald Fehr both present. The Union then presented a new proposal to the league and it was quickly rejected. No new talks are scheduled as well. (Source: NHL)
Where do we go from here?
Actually, that’s a great question. It sounds like, per John Shannon’s Twitter, another round of games will probably be cancelled within the next few days. Sad, I know but so goes this process.
Anyways, I know we all hoped to have NHL hockey back in time for Christmas but I’m just going to say it shouldn’t be expected. Regardless, I hope everyone has a great holiday season and maybe we’ll get NHL hockey back sometime in 2013. No, I don’t expect it but I certainly hope for it.
Until next time, say it with me Panther fans, WE. SEE. RED!!!
