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.
