Draft Cancelled?

Several rumors are swirling that the NHL is about to cancel the draft. The timing of this, as the NHLPA goes into its final day of talks, does sound fishy...One source, "The NHL could be putting the screws to the PA with this announcement...they are sick of waiting for a response...however, don't be surprised if the draft is uncancelled or more likely re-scheduled for slightly later. There is no other reason to make this call now" This is especially odd considering reports that Bill Daly was on Toronto radio less than a week ago saying the draft would go on. why the change of heart? This feels like posturing.

Another source, "The NHLPA has to understand the seriousness of the situation and the reality is that if we don't strike a deal by the end of April extreme measures will be taken. This isn't a game we are playing."
