Well, his sources are network executives. Network executives had close working relationships with Bettman dating to Bettman's NBA days. So, they are 'legit' in the sense that they have connections. However, one must suspect that those executives are getting their info from NHL people. So, the NHL wants us to think that hockey is coming. It's not that hard to figure out.

In any case, this is out: http://www.tsn.ca/story/?id=409136

The idea that the NHL wants a salary rollback *and* longer control over players is hard to bear. As I've asserted before, players should have the opportunity to opt-out of their current contracts.
