Steve Burton’s report, like NHL season, is in limbo

Credit where credit is due: The Channel 4 sports staff deserves a tip of the cap for a noteworthy scoop this week. So then, good work by Dan Roche in beating his media peers and the Patriots public relations staff to the news that Julian Edelman had been placed on injured reserve with a season-ending foot injury.

Not the one you had in mind? Understandable. After all, it wasn’t Roche, but colleague Steve Burton who made news from here to the farthest reaches of western Canada with his report Monday night that a secret meeting had spurred major progress toward ending the NHL lockout.
