Weekend Warriors

And so it continues....with the NHL Executive Committee folks jetting towards New York, and the Board of Governors not far behind, (where's The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen when you need them?) all eyes are on the continuing talks that stretched well into last evening and have begun again today...

"All signs are positive," said a source I spoke with late last night, "there is still pressure, but there is also a second wind in the group. The kind that comes with seeing the light at the end of the tunnel."

One of the funniest moments in this lockout came last night when I was awoken at 12:30am by a call from a player who has been a great source of mine throughout....

"I'm here with a bunch of guys celebrating our last weekend of vacation," this all-star forward said, "The guys want to say a few words.."

HEY MR EKLUND!" the group of drunken NHLers yelled from the noisy bar . "SALARY CAP THIS!"

and they hung up...

There you have it...

I'll be updating more as the day goes...
