“I’m a little leery. The league “knew that deadline [to disclaim interest] was coming, so maybe they were bargaining in good faith up until that moment and maybe they’re going to shut it down today. I don’t dislike anybody, but I don’t trust Gary Bettman right now and what his motive is. He’s a nice man, I’ve met him numerous times, but I don’t trust what’s happened so far.

“If they’re working that late, last night was great and if they keep meeting [Thursday] it’s positive. I just don’t believe anything anymore until it’s done.”

-Jason Chimera of the Washington Capitals. More from Katie Carrera of Capitals Insider.
