League, NHLPA conclude three days of talks
The National Hockey League and National Hockey League Players' Association met Sunday at the League office for a third straight day of negotiations toward establishing a new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

NEW YORK -- The National Hockey League and National Hockey League Players' Association met Sunday at the League office for a third straight day of negotiations toward establishing a new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

The five-hour meeting Sunday continued the discussions on various health and player-safety issues that were first introduced Friday. Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said the League and the Union also spoke about various CBA legal issues.

Daly said the League and the Union do not have any further meetings scheduled, but that is because both sides have internal work to do on the talking points of the past three days. He said talks could continue at any time.

The NHL has already canceled the preseason schedule and Daly admitted this weekend that the early regular-season games are in jeopardy. The 2012-13 regular season is scheduled to open Oct. 11.

Quote of the Day

I kept refreshing the page on the NHL website after the second round and I was shocked he lasted that long. I'm sure the Coyotes were pretty happy to get him. He's such a good player and he plays big in big games.
