Both Sides Meeting Monday

The NHL and NHLPA are set to meet late afternoon tomorrow to resume talks. This is surprising considering Bettman asked for a two week moratorium. Clearly no one was happy with the idea as owners are happy to meet with the players tomorrow.

What makes this interesting is the reports coming out of Philly saying Ed Snider (Owner of the Flyers) was opposed to Bettman and the lockout. Snider of course denied the report but since he isn’t allowed to say anything about the lockout he doesn’t have a choice but to refute the report.

There are rumors out there that Snider and others are going to make a push to end the lockout and get owners to his side. How they will convince the other owners to side with him is unknown but it seems plausible. No one is making money and the smaller market teams may just want to see hockey again. After monday we’ll all know more.
