Frustrated Panther blasts the NHL's key men in CBA fight.
As we watch this debacle continue to unfold, as we pick sides and bang our fan-drums while condemning millionaires for their supposed greed, as the media continues to provide insight and speculation into a process that shouldn't be this difficult...
There’s been concern...that the Panthers are under a time crunch to sign 2008 draft pick Jacob Markstrom so they won’t lose his rights. That’s not an issue.
NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly responded back to me in an email that "actually, they have until next June (2011) to sign him. He is subject to the terms of our Player Transfer Agreement with the Swedish Federation/League."
In case you missed it - or simply didn't get enough of Bill Daly - here's a replay. Thanks to Fel0096 for the link via YouTube.
