Not to be outdone by the NHL, the NHLPA released its own statement following the initial collective bargaining session today in New York.
“Eight players on the negotiating committee, along with NHLPA staff, met with commissioner Gary Bettman, four NHL owners and a number of league staff and legal counsel at the league’s office in New York,” said union chief Donald Fehr. “Following today’s meeting, we will review the NHL’s initial presentation with the players’ committee before reconvening for further talks later next week.”
Hmmm…interesting that the union didn’t say the meeting was “cordial” like the league did.
