While the heads of the NHL and NHLPA spent yesterday over a quiet lunchtime talk, it appears they’ll get back to serious business this afternoon.

NHL Deputy Commissioner told ESPN.com’s Pierre LeBrun he expects both sides to get back to the bargaining table this afternoon. Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review doubly confirmed this as well.

The two sides spent Saturday taking a breather after things got a bit heated on Friday. Those talks led to some on the owners’ side of the equation to cast doubt on Fehr’s leadership of the players. Those allegations have been refuted by many players.

With the two sides still far apart on many issues, especially the league’s “make whole” concept, here’s to hoping cooler heads prevail and smoother negotiations lie ahead.
