Wednesday links? What's going on? Well, new developments in the ongoing CBA negotiations deserve new links. Also: this picture of Emerson Etem has nothing to do with the CBA, but it's still awesome.

While not everyone in the hockey world thinks that the NHL's most recent offer signals the beginning of the end, it is a sign that progress is being made.

  • The NHL's offer won't end the lockout. (No one can steal our joy like a Toronto sports fan). [Pension Plan Puppets]
  • Echoing PPP's sentiment: the NHL lockout fight is still in the middle rounds. [The Globe and Mail]
  • CSN Bay Area echoes the cynicism. (Stay optimistic, but remember that the lockout is far from over). [CSN Bay Area]
  • Also, if you haven't heard already: the NHL hired GOP PR man Frank Luntz to 'spin' the negotiations from their end. [Deadspin]
  • Justin Bourne discusses the glimmer of hope. [Backhand Shelf]
  • Details on contract issues have emerged. [Defending Big D]
  • Eric Stephens examines the Ducks reactions to the new proposal. [OC Register]
  • You lie, Gary Bettman! Oilers forward Shawn Horcoff doesn't think that Gary Bettman cares about the fans. [Puck Daddy]
  • Could the NHL's proposal be a take it or leave it affair? [Fansided]
