Thursday Chum Bucket: More CBA meetings scheduled today

  • The league and PA have met for over 20 hours since Saturday. Some might call that a normal work week but given the state of these negotiations, it has to be viewed as progress. They'll meet again today after last night's meeting consisted largely of discussions on revenue sharing as well as the "make whole" proposition. [Pro Hockey Talk]
  • When the two sides inevitably agree on a CBA, Ray Ratto says it won't be a deal that makes either happy. [CSN Bay Area]
  • Sharks organization will be holding a food drive tonight at Sharks Ice for Second Harvest Food Bank from 6 to 7 PM. Anyone who donates at least five canned items or $5 will have the chance to meet Doug Wilson, Owen Nolan, Mike Ricci, Curtis Brown, Jamie Baker, Randy Hahn, Dan Rusanowsky and Sharkie.

  • Devin Setoguchi recorded two assists in his debut for the Ontario Reign as they defeated the San Francisco Bulls last night in Southern California. [SF Bulls]
  • How often do rebuilds actually work? [NHL Numbers]
  • Skilled forward prospects should no longer be viewed as failures or incapable of securing a spot in the big leagues if they can't crack a team's top six. [Backhand Shelf]/
