I have found that Daly has been a straight shooter in commenting about the negotiations with the NHLPA. He sums up the entire 61 days quite nicely in one paragraph:

"I find it incredible that the union is suggesting that we are somehow 'close' to a deal," added Daly. "They have utterly refused to negotiate for months. They have made essentially one proposal - five times. They continue to request a 'guaranteed' players share as part of the next agreement and we repeatedly tell them maybe they should get a reality check. And in the mean time, maybe they can make their position clear to us on 50-50, on the make-whole and on player contracting issues."

It is clear to me that if the players donít act, Fehr will drag this out until itís too late and the season is lost. Perhaps a few players, especially the veterans, will wake up when they read the words from ex-players like Recchi and Therien, and challenge Fehr now, before itís too late.
