Following is a statement from NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly following today’s collective bargaining session in New York:

“Members of our league office staff and several of our owners met today with the NHLPA and various members of the players’ negotiating committee at the league office in New York. The meeting was very cordial and we hope it was constructive.

“Before breaking, the parties discussed follow-up steps and confirmed plans for future meetings. We have nothing further to report at this time.”

How exciting.

    How about this: both sides aren’t allowed to open their mouths in public unless it’s to announce they’ve reached an agreement. I don’t care how popular they think the game is or that they want to meet in the future. Just shut up and get it done!

    Just once, I’d like someone to say, “the meeting resembled a waterfront bar fight.”
