Finally speaking same language?

It would seem that both sides made concessions yesterday. The NHL apparently dropped the linkage issue, and the NHLPA proposed a salary cap. So it appears that no more Klingon translators are required. However, a deal was still not reached and the Wednesday deadline is looming.
"It is indeed unfortunate that with the major steps taken by both sides today we were unable to build enough momentum to reach an agreement", says Ted Saskin.
Even still, now that the sides have come this far, and the only stumbling block would seem to be thresholds and cap levels, these sides have to get it done. They cannot break down now.

Both sides say that there are no meetings planned for today, but you can bet that there are going to be some talks going on somewhere. Stay tuned, the last hurrah is here.
