Steve Fehr: “When the moment is right, a deal will be done very quickly”

NHLPA special counsel Steve Fehr says he and NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly share something in common — they know what the finish line looks like.

Now they just need to figure out a way to get there.

“One thing Bill Daly and I agree on,” Fehr said while speaking at Toronto’s Prime Time Sports Management Conference. “When the moment is right, a deal will be done very quickly.”

According to TSN, Fehr told conference attendees there are three major hurdles in preventing a new CBA from being completed: splitting money, player contract rules and which side pays for damage caused by the lockout.

Fehr also said the discussion of involving a mediator has been tabled — something the NHLPA is interested in — but said his impression is that the NHL “isn’t terribly interested it.”
