When asked if he could envision the union caving in and accepting a cap, Madden replied, "No, not at all."
Interesting but not unexpected.
Madden had also made some interesting comments earlier in the week (
"I'm surprised we haven't worked anything out yet," Madden said before teeing off in a charity golf event sponsored by the Devils' alumni at the Ballyowen Golf Club.
"You would think with five years of talking, supposedly, and we have nothing, what's going to happen?" Madden said, shaking his head. "I think we might have to shut down the league and start over again. Who knows?"
"My stand is, we have to make the game right, regardless of whose numbers are right," Madden said. "Someone's numbers have to be right. There has to be a meeting of both sides coming together a little bit. I just think it's important to get the season started for the fan base."
