NHL expected to go “silent route” this week

Don’t expect the NHL to say much publicly during this week’s planned CBA talks. According to CSNPhilly.com’s Tim Panaccio, the league plans to go the “silent route” with “the less said publicly, the better off.”

At most, Pancaccio reports the NHL may release the odd statement, a la Bill Daly’s “we talked about a lot of stuff and plan to talk about more stuff” (not his exact words, but pretty much) note that followed this weekend’s meetings.

Common sense tells us this is a good sign, as much of the talk that’s been done publicly during the work stoppage has been for the purpose of disparaging the other side.
