    Once the weather gets better, I recommend the Reverse Finney Method for preparing your tenderloin roast. Works best on a Green Egg, but I have used it on a Gas grill and it works pretty well. BEST MEAT EVER!!!!!!!

    What's a Reverse Finney? Sounds like a figure skating move.

    P.S. All meat was eaten. I think this is our new New Year's Day meal.

    No, it was kept pretty tight. But the word was it was only a series of tweaks. Nothing major.

    Meeting is on now. Seems an issue in the Pension has surfaced. HRR seems to be almost a done deal.

    I still think Fehr will disclaim interest for more leverage.

    Eric Macramalla ‏@EricOnSportsLaw
    So if the sides are close to a deal, don't expect the NHLPA to disclaim interest by Jan 2 deadline; but if deal not close expect disclaimer

    Eric Macramalla ‏@EricOnSportsLaw
    On bad faith disclaimer issue - Fehr may have said sides are close - however Bettman has said they have been far apart - so may help PA

    Eric Macramalla ‏@EricOnSportsLaw
    If Fehr dissolves NHLPA it may not be re-formed and may stay trade association - this may not be same as NBPA and NFLPA

    Well according to that guy called HockeyyInsiderr -- his sources say the deal is 95% done. A lot accomplished in small meetings today.

    Now I certainly don't believe that. He is the only one I have heard of that claims that.. and I would certainly think he doesn't have the sources the other media members do. He also goes on to quote the following:

    Here are the CBA details that the NHL and NHLPA have already agreed upon:
    •$300M make whole amount, with no salary rollbacks and 50-50 HRR split
    •Maximum contract length at 6 years
    •Salary cap at $70.2M this season, goes down to $63.5M next season, but teams have option to buy out 1 player before season starts with no cap impact
    •No re-entry waivers
    •Extended Christmas break for players
    •Duration of new CBA 10 years, with both NHL and NHLPA having the option of opting out after 8.

    The main issue remaining is the players wanting to put a cap on the escrow amount. The league hopes to having this solved by moving up from their previous offer of $60M cap for 2013-14 to $63.5M but the players want either cap on escrow or $67M cap for 2013-14.


    Now no one knows what was in the NHLPA's offer.. so why would this guy?

    I'm not on twitter but I do read it once and a while....

    Well at least they didn't walk away from the NHLPA offer. That's a positive.. But we also don't know if they are having any traction on getting this done...

    Tenderloin keeps very well in freezer. The one we had tonight I had bought before Thanksgiving. Gotta go for the sales, because impulse buying will get you $40/kg (I had bought mine for $19).

    He's claimed to be a few things, including Alexandre Daigle. Personally, I think he is a teenager who has a relative (father, uncle?) who works for the Habs, so once in a while he hears (or, more likely, sees) some things that are actually "insider" stuff.

    More back and forth last night. NHL gave a counter to the NHLPAs counter... NHLPA currently reviewing it.

    Gotta think they are very close to a deal now.

    I bet there's a deal by the end of the week.
