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.

This is a big year for us in a lot of ways. You can see Garth and management really trying to find that solution to get us into the playoffs and consistently have that. The pressure is great. You have to enjoy it. It just means there's a great opportunity ahead of you.
