The NHL and NHLPA engaged in their fifth meeting regarding a new CBA on Friday, discussing various items for more than four hours according to’s  Adam Kimmelman. For the most part, Gary Bettman and Donald Fehr stuck to previous descriptions of a “business-like” process, although Fehr did provide a bit more detail.

“There were a variety of topics discussed — both economic and not central economic — having to do with day-to-day working conditions,” Fehr said. “I think it’s fair to say we had a good and a frank exchange of views.”

The CBA expires on Sept. 15, so the two sides have a lot of work to do in the next couple months. They’re not divulging many details, but one wonders if the “gloves might come off” as training camp/the regular season approaches.

Here’s some quick video from the proceedings, also via

    Two men, three work stoppages, 1/4 of a brain.

    Who else is starting to get a bit worried?
