Twitter reacts to the NHLPA’s proposal

Aug 15, 2012, 10:00 AM EDT

NHLPA head Donald Fehr rolled out the players’ counter-proposal on Tuesday, giving people time to react to the emerging details.

Let’s take a look at some interesting reactions.

Tampa Bay Lightning star sniper Steven Stamkos is on board:

Colby Armstrong seems pleased; this post details how happy Craig Adams is, too.

Tom Gulitti ranks among media members who believe that players are winning the public relations battle:

But Gulitti is far from the only one. Take Josh Yohe, for instance:

Jesse Spector goes a step further by saying that it’s a good sign for the future.

Lou Korac drops a hockey metaphor into the mix, although it’s unclear what four “goals” would have entailed.

Renaud P. Lavoie believes that the NHLPA’s flexibility regarding a salary cap is key to getting a deal done.

Time will tell how much progress was really made on Tuesday, but for many, it’s refreshing to merely come across more positivity.

    they make a great point. last time I was behind the league, I was behind the NFL with their cba lockout, but this time, I’m 100% with the players. I like their offer, the NHL’s first proposal was ridiculous.

    Opinions don’t mean anything though. Now we just wait for news from the owners’ camp, and the sooner, the better.

    Besides stamkos do any of us know who any of the other people are?

      They’re something called a “sports writer” they write about different sports in different cities. In this case theyre most likely hockey writers. Haha

        not just that, but Colby Armstrong and Craig Adams are pretty famous players themselves.

    …. Did someone ask if anyone knows who Armstrong and Adams are? Yes, I think everyone on this knows those 2

    Gotta agree. I was “Mr. Corporate” last time but the players are offering some serious concessions here. Bettman better watch himself….
