Eklund: Players Preparing Response. What is the deal with Jacobs?

We are waiting today on whether or not the players will agree to a one on ones cage match with the owners this week. I am hearing an answer could be forthcoming and that there is already some talking between the sides regarding the rules and who will attend. It is widely known the only owner the players are very much against being in these meetings is Jeremy Jacobs. While the...

Travis Yost: Quick CBA Notes -- On Jeremy Jacobs and the BoG

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- A few quick CBA notes on day seventy-five of the 2012 NHL lockout. (1) The NHL and NHLPA separately met with federal mediators for the first time on Wednesday. It's believed that both sides prepared briefs to outline the current negotiations stalemate to the neutral third-party in the hopes of finding resolution through mutual compromise...

LINK CITY: Owner Jeremy Jacobs is a terrible person

Pic via our boys at Days Of Y'Orr Interesting stuff on the Internet. Usually the cry from people who don't know any better about the lockout is this: "THIS IS ALL GARY BETTMAN'S FAULT," While that is probably true, the Internet has turned it's lazers on Boston Bruins owners Jeremy Jacobs.  This article lays it out pretty clear: Winnipeg...

What would get you back in the stands?

Scrooge McJacobs With the season on the brink of destruction, and the loyalty of the fans wavering, the NHL is going to need to come up with some very creative marketing schemes to get fans back in the stands. I, along with many others, am fed up with the game of chicken that is going on in the negotiating room, and am particularly fed up with Jeremy Jacobs and his all-or-nothing...

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. Miller has made his feeling about Jacobs and the owners abundantly cleaqr during this NHL lockout. I feel like Miller is best suited to be one of six players at the table for these reasons...

Travis Yost: A Note on Gary Bettman's Dumb Proposal

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- Gary Bettman's not the most popular commissioner in North American sports history. The fact that many -- and I emphasize many -- believe he and twenty-nine NHL owners are in the right speaks to how well they've handled these labor talks on a macro-level. The seismic shift in opinion isn't one I envisioned happening just...

Gary Bettman Thinks NHL Players Are Stupid

Earlier this week, the NHL and NHL Players Association met with mediators to see if wasting more money could help put an end to this NHL lockout, and how did it turn out? Well, you’re not watching hockey highlights right now, so it obviously didn’t go well. So where do we go from here? Negotiations between the two sides aren’t going well at all. Hell, they can’t even agree...

Should The Players Meet The Owners?

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN, So if you’re the PA, what do you do here?  On the one hand, players have long ago and predictably tired of Bettman -- name-calling and all -- so the opportunity to see him removed from the bargaining room seems like an offer too good to resist.  On the flip side, some people were quick to argue on Twitter Thursday night that the NHL...

Short Or Cancelled Season?

from Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen, Most hockey insiders believe the league won’t wait as long as it did in 2004-2005, when NHL commissioner Gary Bettman declared on Feb. 16, 2005, that the plug was being pulled. More likely, the season would be canned this time in January, an arbitrary deadline that is fast approaching, after the latest effort, mediation, got nowhere...

Grand Rapids Griffins have the right idea about ending the lockout

Gary Bettman's recently proposed that the members of the NHLPA and the owners meet without the commissioner and the head of the NHLPA, Donald Fehr. You know, to hash it out between the actual interested parties, not between the representitives of thoe parties. The players seem a bit hesitant about this, especially if all owners aren't represented. Why not just streamline...

NHL owners, players to meet Tuesday

NEW YORK (AP) The NHL and the players' association have agreed to a meeting with selective owners and players, but without NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman or union chief Donald Fehr.

NHL owners, players set to meet without leaders

NEW YORK (AP) -- Traditional labor talks have made little progress in the ongoing NHL lockout, so the league and the players' association are going to try something different in an attempt to save the season that is slipping away.
