Bill Daly Says There Will Be A Season

Joe Yerdon at Pro Hockey Talk reports that when asked if there was going to be a NHL season by Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada radio, NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said yes.

However, that yes must be put in context…

Friedman: “‘I hope so’ is not allowed to be an answer to this question or ‘I want to believe so’ is not an answer to this question. Yes or no: Do we have a season?”

Daly: “Yes.”

…while I'm happy to hear yes rather than no, Daly was obviously painted into a corner by Friedman, so take this with a huge grain of salt.

Daly also said that the point of no return for the cancellation of the season is “sometime in mid-January.”
