Damien Cox tweets “Looks like game of chicken is going distance. Fehr believes NHL will give on all issues rather than cancel season. We’ll see if he’s right. “
In The Hockey News, Ken Campbell writes “the players and their leader, Don Fehr, meanwhile, show almost no interest in doing any meaningful bargaining until the pressure of a lockout emerges. Then the players’ association does a ritualistic mating dance with the NHL that is based primarily on avoiding the issues, showing up late and unprepared for meetings and playing an enormous number of head games.”
In the NY Post, Mark Everson writes that there is some belief that if the season is lost, Gary Bettman will lose his job.
