No CBA meetings planned for rest of week

Sep 20, 2012, 11:24 AM EDT


The NHL and NHLPA won’t formally meet Thursday or Friday, reports TSN.

Instead, representatives from each side, including deputy commissioner Bill Daly, will travel to Edmonton for a hearing in front of the Alberta Labour Board.

Seems like a good use of time.

To be fair, the two sides have been speaking informally on a regular basis, and sometimes it’s the informal talks that produce the most progress in CBA negotiations.

However, all this wrangling in front of provincial labor boards that the union has initiated isn’t helping to get everyone back to the bargaining table.

    Please stop posting pictures of Bill Daly’s fat, bald head. The sight of him is sickening in so many ways.

    I’m sorry but WTF?!? Lock these morons in a room. Last time they went months without really talking. How does that get anything done? Shows how out of touch these guys are.

    Get back to work gentlemen! You WILL have to come to an agreement at some point, the sooner the better. Your fan-base is counting on you!

    I think these rich pricks need to come up with a plan and play some hockey.
