The NHLPA has published video of union chief Donald Fehr addressing the media today in Toronto following a brief meeting between the league and players.
According to Fehr, the NHL and NHLPA “mutually” felt their time would be better served reviewing “where we are” and working internally before meeting again Tuesday in New York to “focus on the core economic issues going forward.”
Fehr reiterated his belief that there’s still time to negotiate a new CBA before Sept. 15 when the current agreement expires, then answered a number of questions from reporters, as you can see below:
Times have been tough for Montreal Canadiens and Edmonton Oilers fans lately, even if they’ve been frustrating in different ways.
Saturday’s 5-1 Habs win highlights a few things, but the most tantalizing thought for those fans is that it’s likely that we’ll see more great things from P.K. Subban and Connor McDavid … sometimes against each other.
Perhaps this will be a confidence booster for Montreal. More than anything else, it directed attention to Subban, who’s quietly been absolutely fantastic for the floundering Canadiens.
Consider how much of an offensive burden he’s currently carrying:
Subban updated: 17 points in 16 games, Habs have 36 goals over that span. Subban's been in on 47.2% of them.
