NHL, NHLPA Have Been In Contact, But More Cancellations Coming
After last week's collapse in CBA talks, the NHL and NHLPA "have been in touch with each other in an attempt to restart conversations that could save the hockey season." NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said in an e-mail, "Trying to set up something for this week, but nothing finalized yet" (AP, 12/9). The NHL today is expected to cancel another batch of games, "likely through Dec. 31." Many observers "expected more games to be canceled Friday," but the league "remained silent" (PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW, 12/8).
