Expect bad news soon.

Hey boss. Remember last post how things were beginning to look up? Things were going to change around here, and you could feel it?
About ten minutes after I hit the ‘publish’ button, things got hairy fast.
After the press conference, they brought the players and podium back out on stage. Donald Fehr then dropped a bomb on everyone, stating that Bill Daly had left a voicemail on Steve Fehr’s phone. And, the message wasn’t positive. As a matter of fact, they’re so bad that the NHL doesn’t know when both sides will be meeting, and that stuff is about to come ‘off the table’.
I bought the first presser hook, line and sinker. At least, I bought that the two sides were probably closer than we thought. That might not be the case. I’ve never, ever seen a sports league at any level go through what I’ve just seen and heard.
Not really sure what to say about all of this right now, as Gary Bettman is due up in less than a half hour. I’m fairly certain that whatever comes from his side of the discussion won’t make me feel great.
