Face-Off: NHL, Union Resume Talks, Meet For Several Hours
Negotiations between the NHL and NHLPA restarted yesterday at an undisclosed location. NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly and NHLPA Special Counsel Steve Fehr met for several hours, not wrapping up until 1:00am ET today. "We had a good, frank discussion on the most important issues separating us," Daly said in a statement. "I agree with what Bill said," said Fehr, in a statement of his own. "Hopefully we can continue the dialogue, expand the group and make steady progress." The two sides plan to meet again this week.
