Since the start of the lockout early Sunday morning, neither the NHL nor the NHLPA have had any talks. It appears things may change soon.

During a radio appearance on AM 590 in Toronto, NHL Deputy Commissioner says he plans on talking with NHLPA negotiator Steve  Fehr early Tuesday evening.

“We’re supposed to talk tomorrow early evening to discuss [when to meet up again],” Daly said. “I’d hope we get together this week.”

“It’s really to talk through,” Daly said. “Steve Fehr and I had lunch on Saturday, talked about a lot of the issues we’re dealing with in negotiations and really kind of generate ideas on how to move this forward.”

Yes, it’s a phone call to set up a meeting that may or may not happen but at least they’re not shutting their phones off to avoid each other. Progress?

    Boy- can you just imagine if the two sides make an agreement in the next two weeks?
    The airlines are gonna make a fortune off of all of the signing players flying to the other side of the big pond who all will have to turn around to get back here for training camps!
    That’s alright! They are all rich compared to me!

    By my own choice I haven’t been reading much of these articles directly related to the lockout. As someone who has the intention of remaining a fan, I’d honestly rather not know about the gruseome details behind another NHL lockout. I was wondering about all these signings in the European leagues though… So many high-profile players have fled to European leagues, what happens if and when an agreement is reached, and the NHL resumes its season? Will the NHL players be contractually obligated to bail on the KHL teams? What happens to the KHL contracts?

      those contracts end when the lockout terminates and the new NHL schedule is announced.

      They’ll have an out clause in the contract, allowing them to leave the team.

    These clowns should be locked in a room until a deal is reached. This whole thing is a complete joke. They’re acting like a bunch of teenaged girls stomping off to their rooms in a huff and refusing to negotiate.

    Doesn’t NBC lose money not airing games because of the TV deal? So why doesn’t NBC place some pressure on them to at least negotiate instead of grandstand?

      That is something that I haven’t even thought about ! I wonder how much pressure that NBC can put on them, & will put on them ?

    Hehehehehe! Let’s meet to decide when we meet again. Do members of the G8 meet to decide when to meet again? Or, maybe we should have elections to decide when the next election will be held. What a joke?

      It’s not a meeting, it’s a phone call, just like the article says.

      AGREED !

    Reminds of all the months wasted during the Korean war while the “negotiators” argued about the size and shape of the negotiating table. These buffoons should have set up a regular schedule of meetings long before this. I’d like to call them unprepared, but that would be an insult to everyone who ever had a flat tire without a spare. Or AAA. Can we just call a wrecker and have this disaster hauled off to the junkyard?

    • jtrain1966 - Sep 18, 2012 at 12:32 PM

      I love the last line in your comment ! With that being said, I think we would have to pay dearly to haul off that JUNK !

    A meeting can be in the form of a phone call. Happens all the time in the biz world. Hehehehe.
