Also from that same article...
Asked if he's denying the report, Lamoriello responded loudly.
"I'm just not even responding to anything anymore today," he said. "I just think it’s incredible the way rumors start. It’s just a disgrace that there is a license to start rumors.
“It just kills to have people deal with people’s lives like this.”
Hence me saying... it IS Lou. because, he does what he does. we shall see where this all goes
