NHL, PA scheduled to resume negotiations Monday
Negotiations between the NHL and Players' Association toward a new CBA are expected to resume Monday, according to NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly.

Negotiations between the National Hockey League and National Hockey League Players' Association toward a new Collective Bargaining Agreement are expected to resume Monday, according to NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly.

"We can confirm that we have tentatively agreed to get back together on Monday, either late in the afternoon or early evening," Daly said. "The meeting was requested by the Union and it's their agenda. We will see what they have to tell us."

The sides have not met since Nov. 11, when they got together for roughly 90 minutes and discussed player-contracting issues.

The NHL and NHLPA have been without a CBA since Sept. 16.

The League has cancelled all regular-season games through Nov. 30 as well as the Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic, which was scheduled for Jan. 1 at Michigan Stadium.

Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
