Yeah the lack of press and shots across each others bow through the media probably means the NHL and NHLPA are truly getting down to business and making progress on talks.
A season that starts before December begins would be nice.
These negotiations just make clear what complete and utter bull shit the previous "bargaining sessions" were.
Neither side had made a legit proposal and both sides were simply putting on a show to increase their current position.
The fact it's the no2's from both sides meeting and neither side is talking is fantastic news. That is how the deal got done last time and probably exactly how it's going to get done this time.
