Joe Yerdon at Pro Hockey Talk reports that when asked if there was going to be a NHL season by Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada radio, NHL Deputy Commissioner said yes.
However, that yes, must be put in context...
Friedman: “‘I hope so’ is not allowed to be an answer to this question or ‘I want to believe so’ is not an answer to this question. Yes or no: Do we have a season?”
...while I'd rather hear yes than no, Daly was obviously painted into a corner by Friedman, so take this with a huge grain of salt.
Daly also said that the point of no return for the cancellation of the season is “sometime in mid-January.”
