Devils GM Lou Lamoriello told The Star-Ledger that he is still hopeful part of the 2012-13 season can be saved, but he is, “embarrassed for the game.”
“It’s coming down to the wire right now,” Lamoriello said, according to the report. “We’ve just got to trust the people that are involved. I’m embarrassed we are where we’re at. That’s the best expression I can use.”
Lamoriello said he is surprised that negotiations have taken this long, but that he is not involved in the talks, as he was during previous lockouts.
