Another interesting quote from the NYT article that RB first referenced this morning:
But the union delegate also stressed the “very professional” tenor of the negotiations on both sides.
Reports emerged Friday of a shouting match between players and owners at the end of that day’s meeting. But the delegate said the exchange was “extremely brief” and stood out only because of its rarity.
The exchange was between the free-agent defenseman Chris Campoli and Winnipeg defenseman Ron Hainsey on one side, and the owners Murray Edwards of Calgary and Craig Leipold of Minnesota on the other.
The delegate called descriptions of the incident a “major exaggeration.”
“No one would have noticed it but for the fact that these meetings are very, very professional — no one even raises their voice,” he said.
The current hiatus is all part of the process. 90% the angst and the furor is being driven by the tabloid writers on Twitter.
