Fehr shares his take on Monday’s meeting

While NHL exec Bill Daly provided a candid take on Monday’s meeting and the CBA discussions as a whole, NHLPA head Donald Fehr laid out what went on tonight – and what might happen tomorrow.

First things first, Fehr told ESPN’s Katie Strang that the ownership side was “unwilling” to discuss the contentious contracting issues.

As expected, Fehr confirmed that the NHLPA didn’t make a new proposal, but they did “flesh out” some of the issues from their previous offer.

Ultimately, it comes down to what Daly and the NHL asked for: a full, formal proposal on Tuesday.

As far as that’s concerned, there are two interesting bits.

To start, here’s what Fehr told RDS’ Renaud P. Lavoie about the possibility of coming up with something tomorrow.

“We are going to think about what was said and think about our next step,” Fehr said.

TSN’s Darren Dreger mapped out a possible plan from the NHLPA.

So what’s going to happen? Marc Staal‘s comment to New York Newsday’s Steve Zipay probably captures the consensus:

“We’ll see,” Staal said.
