After Thursday’s media meltdown in New York City, one that could’ve seen the NHL lockout take a turn for the worse, things are not as ugly as they seem.
Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that the league and players have spoken this weekend and ESPN.com’s Pierre LeBrun says it’s Bill Daly and Steve Fehr doing the talking. TSN’s Darren Dreger adds to this saying both sides are pushing their leaders to get back to the table and close out a deal.
That’s the upside to that news. The downside is no meetings have been scheduled yet.
It’s hard to imagine both sides will let things escalate further to put the season in danger. As it is, the NHL still has its games canceled through the 14th and if there’s no progress made soon, we could be in for another round of cancellations soon.
