Bill Daly: Thrashers Sale Reports 'Wrong On All Counts' (Whatever 'All' Means)

Speaking to the Sports Business Journal on Saturday, NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly was quoted as saying the "media was wrong on all counts" in reference to the two or so independent reports of the Atlanta Thrashers being sold and relocated to Winnipeg. Do we really mean all counts, though?

Because if we're just talking about timelines, then that's just one count they may have gotten wrong, and it's not certain that they were wrong about that one yet. Despite the way the Thursday night Globe and Mail story was received, the team has very clearly not been sold yet, no matter how inevitable such a sale appears to be. 

Daly also had some stuff to say about 2011-12 NHL salary caps, but we probably don't need to worry about all that, am I right?
