    If this is about the Harbor Center or something not hockey related, I'm going to be mildly annoyed. VERY MILDLY.

    The lack of notice (1 hour only) leads me to believe it's not HarborCenter related.

    But they wouldn't call a press conference for a trade, would they?

    But calling it "major" reeks of it NOT being major..

    I'm guessing it's Harbor Center related.

    you would think they'd have the foresight to not mess with the fan base, by making Harbor Center news, a "major announcement"

    That makes sense, too.

    Re-signing the captain would be "major". As would re-signing Miller.

    Have they ever held a press conference on short notice for an extension? Not that I recall.

    Ya the major news makes it interesting for sure. Miller could have resigned 5-6 years? Ott maybe? Trade? Firing?
