truth behind the jersey

Quote:
It went up about two weeks ago, as Leafs jerseys (or really anything hockey) haven't been moving during the work stoppage. One of the store's owners decided to create something to garner a little buzz and attract some eyes to the hockey merch: a sweater for Roberto Luongo, No. 1, Leafs goalie.

Henrik voicing his frustration with the owners. It's about the captain made his views heard about the lockout. Bieksa gives some comments about the CBA negotiations too:

H. Sedin: Owners' views on lockout "a little mind-boggling"

Yeah, Trevor WHO?

The Bestest damn captain you dun had, so bestest the Canucks still owe him for all he did for your team.

In, all seriousness, bumping Linden from the C and then trading him was a dick move. Glad he was able to return.

Seems like some progress is being made now

BETTMAN MUM AS NHL AND NHLPA CONTINUE CBA TALKS


A tight-lipped Gary Bettman briefly addressed the media on Wednesday afternoon as the league and the NHL Players' Association prepared for another bargaining session to come up with a collective bargaining agreement and save the 2012-13 season.

"We are pleased with the process that is ongoing and out of respect for the process, we're not answering questions," the NHL commissioner told reporters.

A grouping of six NHL owners and 18 players met through the afternoon and into the night on Tuesday without either Bettman or union chief Donald Fehr in attendance.

"I appreciate the efforts of the players, in particular we had 18 players in there (Tuesday) and six of our owners," NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said after the nearly eight-hour meeting. "I think everybody is working hard. I think everybody wants to get a deal done, so I think that's encouraging."

Daly and NHLPA special counsel Steve Fehr stood side-by-side after Tuesday's meeting while making their statements to the media.

"I thought it was a constructive day, we had a good dialogue," Fehr said. "In some ways I'd say it might be the best day we've had, which isn't to paint too overly optimistic of a picture. There's still a lot of work to do and a lot to be done, but we will be back at it (Wednesday) morning."

The owners were represented by chairman of the NHL's board of governors, Jeremy Jacobs of the Boston Bruins. He was joined by Murray Edwards of the Calgary Flames, as well as Pittsburgh's Ron Burkle, Tampa's Jeff Vinik, Mark Chipman of the new Winnipeg franchise and Larry Tanenbaum of the Maple Leafs.

The players' contingent included Penguins captain Sidney Crosby -- who has been well-versed in and involved with negotiations since they began -- along with Chicago captain Jonathan Toews and teammate Jamal Mayers, Buffalo goaltender Ryan Miller, Vancouver forward Manny Malhotra, St. Louis forwards Andy McDonald and David Backes, Florida's George Parros, Rangers center Brad Richards, Tampa Bay veteran Martin St. Louis and teammate B.J. Crombeen, Los Angeles forward Kevin Westgarth, Phoenix captain Shane Doan, Pittsburgh's Craig Adams, Winnipeg defenseman Ron Hainsey, Edmonton's Shawn Horcoff, Calgary center Michael Cammalleri and Mathieu Darche.

Both sides met for more than five hours, broke in the evening, then reconvened nearly two hours later until finally resting for good shortly after Midnight et.

Bettman first suggested the idea of a face-to-face meeting between owners and players without some of the usual representatives from either side involved in the collective bargaining sessions.

The two factions met twice last week with the involvement of federal mediators, but the process was unsuccessful as it had been during the 2004-05 lockout.

The current work stoppage, which began Sept. 16, has already forced the cancellation of regular-season games through Dec. 14, as well as the Winter Classic and All-Star Weekend.

they apparently made good progress for one day, if similar or better progress isnt made today the seasons basically done. this is the last ditch effort to make something happen. but from that annoying smirk bettman had during the conference i at least got the feeling theres a decent chance now

Also, effective immediately, even joking that Mark Messier was a good Canucks captain is grounds for ban.
