NEW YORK -- National Hockey League Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly issued the following statement regarding the collective bargaining sessions that were held in New York July 5 and 6:
"We had two productive days of meetings with the NHLPA and the Players, concluding this afternoon at about 1:45 pm. A number of important issues were raised on both sides of the table, all of which will be discussed more thoroughly as we get deeper into bargaining. We are pleased with the level of engagement and look forward to meeting again next week."
I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
