For the record, it was a player related source who provided the tip and the NHL reluctantly confirmed the story just before 6pm Fri.

I'm certain of this, based on number of texts received from players. They want a deal and want their leadership to focus on getting it done.

Not to say the players are caving...they're not, but they want focus to remain on negotiations and away from petty memos to media.

@DarrenDreger when outside sources continue to attempt to undermine the PA.... It's important to clear things up with the truth #dontuthink

@Rupper17. Undermine? Report indicated progress. As a player you should be encouraged. If NHL backs off on position we will report as well.
