Even more ridiculous than that last sentence.

If the league had THAT level of manipulative skill the players would all be living in communal apartments and being paid gas money. It's ridiculous on the face of it.
On the face of it, I think we have to accept what Dreger is saying as far as the source being the non-NHL side. Either that, or accuse him of lying which I personally don't believe is the case.
