We all knew the owners were going to send Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs to the players/owners meeting tomorrow. The guy gives me a rash; hardest of the hardliners. At least the owners from the Jets, Flames and Lightning will bring a little perspective. But why...Why in the world are the players sending Sidney Crosby and Jonathan Toews?

Here is a salary/contract breakdown of the 18 players involved yesterday’s meeting. Sidney Crosby, 13 yr/112...

Paul McCann: Hope Springs - An Appreciation and Tonight's SlapShot Radio

Hope springs eternal. I am doing my best to control my feelings of hope today as these meetings seem to be going well. Perhaps it’s time to believe in Christmas miracles. Especially fascinating is the positive influence that Sidney Crosby appears to be having in these talks, it may even make a Philly fan change his opinion of Sid the Kid… at least until the first...

Richard Cloutier: NHLPA Ends Player Starvation by Writing Some Cheques

Let Them Eat Steak The NHLPA reached deep on Saturday, and issued NHL players a $10,000 stipend, to help get them through the holiday season. $10,000 if you're Darcy Hordichuk is a lot of money. $10,000 if you're Sidney Crosby is fire starter. I shouldn't make jokes about the hard time players are going through. I mean, they've missed four pay-cheques at this...

GARTH: Miller Will be In The Room

I'm not bragging, but.... Five of my six NHL powerball numbers have hit.
