Owners & Players Only, Brodeur Sound Off, More...

Happy December HabsAddicts!!!

After the end of Thursday's negotiating session, Gary Bettman suggested that executives of the NHL and NHLPA recluse themselves from the next bargains session. This would allow players and owners to meet face to face for the first time in these negotiations.

While it remains to be seen who will participate from both parties,'s Scott Burnside and Craig Custance debate the pros and cons of such a meeting.

But it begs the question, "Is this idea presented in good conscience, or is it an attempt by the owners to throw Gary Bettman under the bus?"

Habs and Hockey Notes:

- New Jersey Devils' goaltender Martin Brodeur sounds of to the Gazette's Dave Stubbs about what it's like to have to trudge on after a fourth work stoppage.

- Ryan Dadoun of NBC Sports discusses how the longer the NHL Lockout drags on, the more likely Tampa Bay superstar Steven Stamkos may be pushed to play in Europe.

- After Minnesota Wild goalie Josh Harding was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune explains how Harding turned such bad news into an inspiration for others.
