It may have been a PR move by the league letting someone like Dreger report that information, however I don't like it for this reason. The NHL goes ahead and cancels the Winter Classic which I was very much looking forward to seeing. Plus it's the first time they finally let a Canadian team like Toronto play in one. So knowing all this why didn't the NHL let the NHLPA know about their concession last week or earlier because they could have talked and maybe saved the Winter Classic. Basically if they reach a new CBA next week or in two weeks, then I say why even cancel the Winter Classic?
