Found December 03, 2012 on Fox - The Hockey Guy:
PLAYERS: Jeremy Jacobs
So some National Hockey League players will meet face-to-face with NHL owners Tuesday.Is there any hope for a new collective bargaining agreement that would end the ongoing lockout? Or will the NHL keep marching toward brand suicide?We shall see. There was a spasm of optimism in the Twitterverse Tuesday, but it faded quickly. Here is what folks were saying today:Jeremy Rutherford: “Steve Burton of @wbzsports in Boston is reporting that a deal to end the lockout could be announced soon. Burton is very tuned into Bruins.”Jesse Spector: “WBZ is a perfectly fine news source, and it is in Jeremy Jacobs’ team’s city. Full credit if they’re right, but . . . I’m also not going to get all fired up over “could.” Way too many incidents of false hope throughout this saga.”Adrian Dater: “For the record, nothing I've been told would back up WBZ story. I hope it's right, but...ain't making plane reservations to Calgary yet.”Sarah Kwak: “Asked if there was ANY MORSEL of truth to WBZ repo

Eklund: Meet The Five Men Who Are Just Going to Do WHATEVER Jacobs Says.

GARTH: Miller Must Represent The Players On Tuesday

If I get my Christmas wish, Ryan Miller will be seated three feet away from Bruins owner, Jeremy Jacobs, for the owners-NHLPA meeting which is scheduled to take place in Manhattan on Tuesday 12/4.

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings: Lockout 'Script'; '94-'95 Redux?; Results Roundup

Will there be any CBA progress this week? I'm still not ready to say the 2012-13 season will be canceled. But I don't have much optimism about this week's NHLPA/NHL owners' meetings. I suspect both sides continuing to dig in their heel and more time being wasted. I felt that way even before it was confirmed that Jeremy Jacobs will be part of the meeting, and now...
