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."
