140 Characters Won’t Do It

from Elliotte Friedman of CBC,

In this Twitter-obsessed, instant-analysis world, all of us need to know what's happening RIGHT NOW. This isn't that simple. There are positive signs, as, before the board get-together, one governor said: "This meeting is going to be completely different than many of us expected," due to Tuesday's lengthy bargaining sessions.

But just because the "new" owners inside the room and their counterparts across the table are more willing to find common ground doesn't mean it's going to be easy.

There was an animated conversation in a hallway between Daly and Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs witnessed by reporters. Daly reportedly talked Jacobs out of leaving the meetings following a verbal confrontation with Buffalo Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller.

Miller, reached by email, said: "Really? I don't have any recollection of that or why [Jacobs'] opinion would be that."

Going into the player-owner meetings I thought having Miller there may not be a good idea since he has been pretty open about his take on the issues (not stupid like some, but honest and open). Funny to see that he may be the one that got the rise out of Jacobs and not the other way around. Guess he can expect to be run by the Bruins more often whenever the next season starts with the NHL’s blessing that he was “Fair Game”.

Ryan Miller has more heart than just about anyone else in this league. As a fan, I’m glad to know he’s involved in this sport.
