NHL, Union endeavoring to restart labor talks
The National Hockey League and the NHL Players Association are working at getting back to the bargaining table, according to NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly.

The National Hockey League and the NHL Players Association are working at getting back to the bargaining table, according to NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly.

The two sides have not met since three days of negotiations last week ended on Thursday without producing a new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

"Trying to set up something for this week, but nothing finalized yet," Daly said in regards to resumption of the negotiating process.

The sides met for nearly 20 hours during sessions last Tuesday and Wednesday in New York City before negotiations reached an impasse Thursday evening.

The NHL and NHLPA have been without a CBA since Sept. 16. Games have been cancelled through Dec. 30, along with the 2013 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic and the 2013 NHL All-Star Game.

Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
