NHL lockout goes on
NEW YORK - It's day 66 of the NHL lockout and while the two sides are talking, there is no indication that they're getting anywhere. Representative for the league and players got together for about two hours yesterday, with union executive director Donald Fehr indicating the two sides would try to set up something this morning.
Negotiations resumed for the first time in eight days yesterday and last for about two hours.
The league contends that it is waiting for the players to present a full proposal on all the major issues, including core economics and player contracting. After the request was made, the players' association asked for a break and the meeting adjourned soon after.
