More Nick Kypreos on Sportsnet, "Disclaimer is in play now. We are so close in negotiations we could have a deal in next 24hrs."
Might start dancing.
I honestly don't even know why the league would fear a DOI from the players. It's beyond obvious that it's being used as a negotiation tactic to gain leverage. Other than the hassle of attending court, and the fees that come with it, they really shouldn't have anything to be worried about. If that helps get a deal done, though, I'm all for it.
