S. Fehr-Daly to talk tomorrow … Anonymous GM giving quotes … Martin signs 4 year deal … NHLPA Video

  • Katie Strang via twitter: Steve Fehr and Bill Daly spoke on the phone yesterday, and plan to talk again on Tuesday evening.
  • George Malik via twitter: Malik responding to Walsh’s tweet: “Players heading to Europe doesn’t equal giving up. It means it’s not too hard for ’em to find other places to play if they wish.”
  • Allan Walsh via twitter: Anonymous GM on what leverage the players may have: ““None. We took away all of their leverage by canceling the playoffs in 2005. And, we’ll do it again, if we have to.
  • Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun: The lockout won’t be felt income wise long-term for teams like the Flyers or Maple Leafs, but it might for the Coyotes and Islanders. All 30 teams backed Bettman, but the “Maple Leafs, who were ardent dissenters in the last lockout, will be strongly against this lockout as well.”
  • Renaud Lavoie via twitter: The Islanders signed Matthew Martin to a 4 year, $4 million contract. The contract was submitted on Saturday.

    Received a letter today from the Wild

    Despite voting against a lockout the Wild regret to inform you that the league has mandated that we lock out players. We are sorry for this inconvience and hope you will support us in 2013.

    Thank you!

    Minnesota Wild

    Wow, strong comments by the GMs on the lockout. The stubbornness of the owners and General Managers is going to kill the league. Fans can’t rush back if the attitude is we’ll always be quick to fully support the league again.
