Although not a lot of details have emerged from Wednesday's CBA negotiating session, the fact that it was very long is being taken as a positive by Niklas Kronwall.

"(But) I don't think there's a need for people to start talking about it too much just yet," Kronwall said. "It's important for the guys (negotiating) to do what they do." The media is being largely kept in the dark about the latest negotiations, but we'll take that as a good sign. Both sides have drastically toned down the rhetoric lately - if not dropped it entirely - which might be an indication of how serious they're treating this latest round of negotiations.
