There is a report out of Philadelphia that Flyer owner Ed Snider may be tiring of the lockout.
It seems that Snider, one of NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman's inner circle owners and one who has a considerable amount of sway, isn't seeing a big win that was allegedly promised to the owners. Multiple sources have indicated that if the best deal Bettman can get is the one the players are proposing then the NHL should get on with the business of playing and end the lockout. The question is, how many owners feel as Snider allegedly does? There are a few teams that are perceived as anti-lockout (Rangers, Penguins) and others that are in favour of the shutdown (Boston). Stay tuned. This could get interesting.
