Bettman said of talks, "There was some progress, but we are apart on a number of issues" (USA TODAY, 1/3). NHLPA Exec Dir Donald Fehr offered an analogy to describe the talks: "It's sort of like if you have a river to cross; you either have to build a bridge or you have to do something else if you're going to cross the river" (N.Y. POST, 1/3). The Toronto Star's Damien Cox previews today's talks by writing, "Big day today any way it goes" (TORONTO STAR, 1/3). The Ottawa Sun's Bruce Garrioch writes, "There's a long way to go to save the season" (OTTAWA SUN, 1/3).
