ESPN News reporting meetings are over and no information will be released by the NHL. Then Brian Burke came on and said the NHL has lost the casual fan forever. Following Burke was Barry Melrose and said he cannot understand why the players will not accept a salary cap. Burke chimed in and said Bettman went to the union two years ago and offered them an outstanding contract and the players laughed at him.
Burke says 25% chance of playing this year and Melrose said they will not play.
