I think you guys are just trying to hold hope for Burton's report by discrediting Dreger and Mac

long time Bruins fan and well aware of hte Burton's including Steve, and not saying he did, but if anyone can get Jeremy Jacobs and get a comment my money is on this guy

What I do believe is that someone in a high place did tell burton something...the questions are

If it is true.. Who told him?

If its not... Who told him and why?

Probably because the last time they locked out and lost a full season NHL fans came back in droves (because we're suckers) and boosted the NHL to record revenues...

In essence, we did the exact opposite of what we should have done.

Y'see, the joke was that two quarters is 50% of a dollar. There was no 53% in the parable.

Based on how many times you've said player-hater in these threads I think you should change your avatar to Mary J. Blige.

From listening to it, it seemed like dreger was politely saying burton was wrong and didn't wanna trample him because he obviously has some credibility and someone probably did say something to him.

Isn't Dreger in a plane delay or something? He might be bored.

Maybe it's a smoke screen...
And their finalizing details of an agreement.

What did those two say specifically?

I can't remember them being particularly outspoken.

They should have brought a coach in there for the players to change lines on the fly in the middle of the meeting.

Its easier to denounce the owners as a whole, but once the guy who signs your check shows up... you can no longer throw fire at the direction in case it hits your superior.
