  • Not to be a rabid conspiracy theorist but the NHL's alleged offer of an extra $100 million to the PA if they agree on a CBA by January 5th that would ensure a 50-plus game season seems like another attempt to paint devil horns on Donald Fehr when this inevitably falls through. [Pro Hockey Talk]
