Let's hope it's a long meeting. The TSN panel shot down my hopes with a note that talks have taken on a different feel. Not as warm and fuzzy as before.
They had better not break off talks. No matter who is at fault.. that will severely piss off the fans.
The media hypes these meetings so much... maybe they should be silent until this is all over.

Hopefully it is…I just saw all over Twitter this morning from "reporters" that the two issues left were contract length and CBA length. Not sure if the players actually accepted the $300M make whole - with $50M of that going to pensions or something? I didn't bother understanding that part.
Anyways, I would bet money on a deal being reached, tentatively at least, within 10 days.
