Just talked to someone not in the meeting, but close to the situation. A big reason for the caucusing lately is that both sides are spending a great deal of time looking for loopholes that could burn them down the line. "We need to remember the early word after the 94 settlement was that that owners had won. Quickly Goodenow turned it around found loopholes and made the loopholes known to the agents. That is not a cut, that is to his credit. The NHL does the same thing."
