    Cool. Well if it is real it could be anything from a "season is dead" announcement to simply more PR and posturing. Could be a conference call to inform people what went on after a Board of Gov.'s meeting. At least the single hockey fans on these boards can maybe claim they have a date on valentine's day now?

    This is no really big deal. It is the Fan Action Network Foundation inviting the media to a teleconference and webcast as they are making a statement regarding the CBA impasse. From their website:
    At the bottom of their site is a February newsletter that outlines their motivation to have an active say in the business of the NHL and a part in the CBA negotiations.

    I'd never heard of the FAN organization or what how you at any time before and it seemed really really odd that they would know about a teleconference and the big stations wouldn't. I did not really comprehend that the FAN was the one initiating the contact with the league.

    This is not to be taken as an offensive comment, I was just wondering "how does this guy know this without anyone else having a clue?" That's why it seemed random.
     
  12. no offense taken :)
