Is it me or does Dreger seem to be a tremendous weasel...
The NHL did move off thier original position of the deferment to "make whole" that the players didn't like in an official proposal.

He got info from a player source, proceeded to verify it with the other side. Got it verified and ran the story. I don't know about all the other stuff you're talking about(twitter etc.) but on this one, he did what a good reporter should do.

It even looks worse for people claiming he's a league trumpet when the story originated from an agent or someone else closer to the PA side.

It was news and he reported it. Simple as.
