Brian Burke said Scott Niedermayer HAS NOT been given a deadline of tomorrow to decide whether or not he’s retiring. Niedermayer’s wife is close to giving birth, Burke said, and for that reason he’s willing to extend the deadline past the draft and into next week, to let Niedermayer concentrate on his family.
No news will be good news IF Niedermayer decides to come back … whenever he eventually decides.
No news from Teemu, either.
Check out tomorrow’s editions for what Burke had to say about the Ducks’ No. 12 overall pick.
