Hearing that progress was made in the meeting. Owners expect to continue talks tonight.

Hearing that Ron Burkle has been voice of reason today. Obviously, with Crosby in room it creates a interesting dynamic.

@JSportsnet: Couldn't help but notice Crosby's agent Pat Brisson is in hotel, along with Pens co-owner Mario Lemieux. Could Pgh be building a bridge?

Yeah just saw the Lemieux thing. I've been thinking if Crosby is there and Burkle is one in the room, the Pens know something. Lets just hope no one tries to accuse Sid and Mario of talking off the record about this, because there's no way they have ...

It's funny because tomorrow also happens to be the BoG meeting.

It was also Brad May and not actually the Insidurrrr. I just thought it was funny because, well, Bettman would be addressing the media tomorrow one way or another.

The Bettman press conference is because there is a BoG meeting tomorrow. Standard procedure as far as that goes.

If Ron Burkle gets these 2 moving closer to the middle~ Wash DC should be his next stop.

Not surprising. Burkle & Lemieux have made huge investments in the Penguins, and they're currently throwing away a year in the prime of many of their players with this lockout. I don't know if there'd be a "moderate" team more vested in getting things moving than the Pens.

This lockout is somehow going to all be the Penguins' fault if they help broker the deal... I don't know how, but it will be.

Who would have thought that as soon as you get Bettman and Fehr outta there everything starts sounding positive.

also told that Pens owner Ron Burkle made his presence felt in the meeting so far today. I think the players are receptive to him.
