The owners, including the Lightning’s Jeff Vinik, and players met for almost 20 hours on Tuesday and Wednesday. The NHL proposed an offer that was shot down by the NHLPA. (Big surprise.) In a meeting today that lasted less than an hour, the union’s proposal was given and rejected by the NHL. (Bigger surprise.)
They say that they are closer. Yet still seem so far apart. When hope is in the doorway, the door slams in it’s face.

Merry Christmas to all! And to all a good night.
