I thought Jacobs was reported as one of the owners attending? I was more surprised that the owner of the Lightning, Jeff Vinik, will be there.
I may have heard wrong. Hopefully not, though, 'cause obviously fuck him.
And Burton is a reporter, working primarily (if not near-exclusively) with/for/whatever the New England Patriots. He doesn't have much of a hockey background. But he's apparently very, very well-respected in Boston. So, we'll see.
Edit: Of course Daly's just come out and said Burton's report was completely false.
