NHL Lockout: The BURTON PROPHECY Coming To FRUITION
NO ONE believed him.
NO ONE had faith in him.
NO ONE could TRUST a hockey “outsider”.
Steve Burton Of WBZ-TV reported the following on Monday:
Sources tell WBZ-TV’s Steve Burton that an unannounced meeting was held Monday with a high-ranking official from each side, and significant progress was made toward salvaging the hockey season. It’s possible an announcement could come as soon as tomorrow or Wednesday.
EVERYONE was calling him a “FAT LIAR FACE”.
They were NON-BELIEVERS of the“BURTON PROPHECY”.
They were RAINING on his parade.
Well, it looks like the rain cloud is hanging over the NHL “INSIDERS” now.
Hope they brought their galoshes and life boats.
HURRICANE BURTON is coming.
Since the Prophecy De Burton, both sides have had their most promising meetings since the NHL lockout began.
“GREEDY GARY” even said he was “PLEASED”.
Reports are swirling that Bettman wants a deal in place this week.
Ok, so Steve Burton may be off a few days.
Cut the PROPHET some slack…..geez louise.
Remember sometimes someone who is not MIRED IN THE MUCK will be more likely to see the light.
So he was RIGHT that SECRET meetings were going on….
Prior to ystrdy’s meeting, Ron Burkle had been working in the shadows for a few weeks with #NHL owners, which is why things escalated fast.

Triblive reported that Sidney Crosby & Pens co-owner Ron Burkle were in contact on Monday and talking for weeks:
Over the past few weeks, Crosby, Burkle and Lemieux have privately discussed plans to bridge the gap between players and owners. The sources said all three had grown frustrated with the lack of progress.
Crosby and Burkle flew to New York together Monday. Burkle lives in suburban Los Angeles. Crosby’s Los Angeles-based agent, Pat Brisson, also was on the flight, the sources said.
None of the Penguins’ management contingent was available for comment, but Crosby told the Tribune-Review on Tuesday morning, “Ron is a great owner. He wants everything to be first class, and he cares about everyone in the organization. He only wants what’s best for the team.”
WHOOP there it is.
So before you DISMISS someone because they are not an “INSIDER”, let things shake out first.
When the NHL Lockout ends this week, Steve Burton will be shaking his middle finger at the countless DOUBTERS.
Actually no he wouldn’t because he is a CLASS ACT.
