Brian Burke on Vancouver Radio CKNW 980(www.cknw.com) Audio Vault - Thursday, June 23rd, 11PM. He stated that he believes a deal will be done, but that July 1st is too soon, and out of the picture. He feels a deal is more likely to be announced around July 15, or shortly after that. He's hearing that recently negotiations have come to a crawl, and that he actual heard from a source that the PA and the NHL spent 2 hours discussing the topic of Player Parking at home games. Thats how slow the negotiations have gotten, and he said the players are disputing the fact that at some home arenas the players have to pay for parking. By the way, I'm actually serious about the parking thing, I wish I was making it up.
