Red Wings' Daniel Cleary cautions players to keep opinions to themselves:
“This is a very sensitive time in negotiation and it’s very important, and we don’t need any antics from anybody as far as anyone getting upset,” Cleary said.
I have a feeling it'll come out of nowhere if a deal is done or the season is cancelled.
Agreed. After how no one knew about the mediator in the bargaining room until Bettman said it, no one has a clue of what's really going on. I suppose only the 10 or so players, Fehr, Bettman, rest of NHL officials know exactly what the real problems are. And I remember the 2005 NHL lockout unexpectedly ending at midnight. The 2011 NBA lockout ended at like 3 AM ET, few hours after ESPN twitter sources reported that "not much" was going on.
