Unless someone can connect him to Jacobs / Jacobs talking to him, I don't see how his comment merits much attention.

Even if Jacobs did float some information to him it could've just been positive spin / conjecture on Jacobs' part to calm the bad sentiment against him, etc.
There were reports the lockout was about to end last time in Feb.

The one thing I'm sure of right now: This news will spread like a hungry virus, then if it is wrong, fans are going to lose it on the owners and players when they announce after Wed they "can't figure things out".
