Yesterday it was announced that U.S. Federal mediators would be entering the fray to help the NHL and players association get down to business.
Today's comment of the day comes from CBCSports commenter coupe93, who is less than excited with the fact that this intervention comes as non-binding arbitration for the NHL and NHLPA:
"Great! A U.S. Federal Mediation team where both sides aren't bound to any recommendations.
Like the Cavalry coming to save the besieged without guns! Yawn."
