I'm not terribly optimistic about his report but it makes you wonder why such a well respected guy would put his reputation on the line like that. Then again. Nobody cares about the NHL in the states so would anybody notice if he was wrong?
But wouldn't this be more to do with a local sports beat reporter in Boston knowing more about the local club?

This is a much different breaking story and not local. Plus that its unlikely any team or source would divulge too much on a detail like this.

If Terry Jones started predicting the end of the lockout I wouldn't take it too seriously either. Being team connected is not the same as having the inner scoop on a league lockout.
