Don Fehr to players last night: "You should not read too much into media reports about informal phone calls."

Fehr: "Both sides have agreed to keep [today's meeting] confidential... to keep the focus on the talks and not on conducting media scrums."
Lawyer speak, the NHL hasnt made a formal proposal just heavily hinted at a possible solution. So Fehr's comments are justifiable to some extent. I do however belive that he should be informing at the very least his negotiating comitee about the possible concession and devising ways to maximize the PA's benefits out of it. If like most of the players the negotiating comittee hasn't heard of it then Fehr isnt doing his job. But it seems that there is starting to be some unrest amongst the players and I don't think Fehr will be able to keep them inline that much longer, sooner or later the players will force him to make a deal.
