Larry Brooks ‏@NYP_Brooksie
Told that NHLPA was able to talk players out of issuing statement...Ovechkin has returned, Datsyuk has pledged to honor last 2 yrs with Det

Does anybody know if this guy is legit?
That would be Brooksie, probably the most famous NHL reporter from the NY area(likes get in fights with the coach). It's up in the air if it's fully legit and accurate, but it's a lot more worrisome coming from him than if someone like Eklund posted it.

It also jives with Mackenzie's tweets the other day, it just names names.
