Video: Daly, Schneider provide CBA update

Aug 8, 2012, 6:50 PM EDT

The NHLPA hasn’t made it’s counteroffer yet and, as of Tuesday, there was no timetable for when they’ll do so. That being said, the NHL and players’ union are still meeting and making progress.

One of the topics they’ve been discussing recently are player healthy and safety issues, which is an area NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly thinks the two sides share a lot of common ground. You can watch Daly and Mathieu Schneider, who is a special assistant to NHLPA boss Donald Fehr, provided an update on Tuesday, which you can watch below.

The two sides also discussed supplemental discipline on Wednesday. As Katie Strang reported, Daly said there are some “strongly-held views,” but he declined to call Wednesday’s talks “tense.”

Strang believes things “heated up” on Wednesday. She also believes that Thursday and Friday’s talks might be particularly telling as they address economic issues over the next two days.

    Fear not friends, they’ll get it done …

    The simple truth is, that the economic landscape has changed “completely” since the last time we went through this garbage back in 2004 … so trust me, a deal will be had. If there’s one thing that you can always expect from a “wealthy pig” to do, then that is to keep coming back to the trough. These idiots are riding an unexpectedly “long” wave and therefore they know collectively that it wouldn’t be prudent at this point to push their luck any further. Look for a deal to be had between these clowns by Labor Day.

    By the way, did you guys hear the news ? … the LA Kings plan to “do it again” man !
