Reports that Flyers chairman Ed Snider has grown weary of the NHL stance on the current work stoppage is unequivocally false.
Snider issued a statement disputing a Philadelphia Daily News column that was published Saturday that claimed as much.
"An article appearing in today's Philadelphia Daily News is absolutely erroneous,” Snider said. “I am a solid supporter of National Hockey League Commissioner Gary Bettman and the League in this unfortunate situation.
“Like all fans, players, owners and League officials, I am extremely hopeful that an agreement can be reached and we can eventually be playing hockey again soon. League rules prevent me and all owners from making any comments on the labor negotiations. I will continue to honor that and not make any further comments."
The NHL and the League’s Player’s Association have been without a labor agreement since Sept. 16 and have not met since last Sunday. No new talks have been scheduled as of this time.
