That hasn't stopped the accusations that every single tweet by players is a PR stunt as well. No one has any 'proof' that the NHLPA even has a PR firm, whereas it is known that Luntz runs the NHL's messaging service.

Wrt the current verbal proposal, Dreger said someone from the PA side passed on the info. Fehr said there has been no proposal since Oct 18. They may be tossing ideas around so that everyone is correct.

It seems a little disingenuous to blame the owners for a story that didn't originate with them.

Minor nit. I think Dreger said someone from the PA side. That doesn't mean it was a player.
