The only possible thing telling Dreger this could do is to cause his player distraction and likely poor play. Unless Nonis is a complete buffoon bent on ruining his team's chances (who knows, maybe he's one of the tank crowd?), there's no way he said such a thing to Dreger.

I call weasel.
I have it on good authority Dreger isn't making this up. People don't give him the credit he's due. He's a very powerful person in hockey, the absolute highest in the media. If he says it, it's true.
