Little progress as talks resume
The NHL's top two executives - Commissioner Gary Bettman and Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly - met with the NHLPA's main negotiators - executive director Donald Fehr and special counsel Steve Fehr - for nearly an hour in the morning to assess where the sides were on Day 25 of the NHL lockout, but there was no concrete discussions on the troublesome core economic issues preventing a deal.
A four-hour session that stretched into evening centered on player health and safety issues along with other miscellaneous legal topics.
The sides will meet again Thursday, which would have been Opening Night for the NHL.
The NHL canceled the first two weeks of the regular season Thursday, wiping out 82 games from Oct. 11-24.
