He isn't right. Even if it's over tomorrow, he isn't right.
I don't know, this whole meeting's starting to smell like a setup (in a good way). Think about it, the whole hockey world hates both Bettman and Fehr. Even them coming to a deal isn't going to give everyone warm fuzzies, it would be just like - finally. But if you have a deal that everyone thinks originated with the players and owners themselves, a lot of the bitterness over the lockout gets glossed over since it's the guys who matter to hockey fans - team owners and players - that laid the groundwork for a deal to finally get done instead of Bettman/Fehr, who everyone's going to hate no matter what. Plus if there are going to be concessions on both sides which presumably there are, Bettman/Fehr don't want to be seen as the ones who gave them because of their labor reps.
Not to mention after the guy's story comes out all the big Canadian guys (McKenzie, Dreger, LeBrun) go dark for like eighteen hours, and nobody directly refutes it - only saying that they don't know anything about it.
