Slowly The CBA Process Moves Forward

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN, The players emerged from the room around midnight and scurried down the hotel escalator past reporters, unwilling to share much, if anything.  The smiles on some of their faces, however, suggested it wasn’t a bad day at all.  As one player would later share via text message to ESPN.com, "There was certainly traction.

Two Topics At The Forefront

from Elliotte Friedman of CBC, There are two big storylines developing from Tuesday's lengthy labour talks between the NHL and the NHLPA here in Manhattan. The first is that Steve Fehr, the NHLPA's number two, referred to yesterday as "the best day we've had." The second is the Pittsburgh contingent's effort to end the lockout. Let's take...

Talks remain at a precarious point, with tempers tender

If you believe the concept that "leaks" are a bad thing, then this little origami paper crane flittering and fluttering over a bonfire is starting to smolder, as one might expect.

NHL Rejects Latest NHLPA Proposal Following Three Days of Meetings as Talks Break Down Again

After three days of marathon meetings between the owners and players – without outside influence on either side — there seemed to be some promise in the ongoing NHL lockout discussions.

Bill Daly explains the Fehr-in-the-room hissy fit via a hissy fit

I know that this evening's events have polarized fans somewhat, but Ron Hainsey offers an answer to Mr. Deep Inside's concern about Donald Fehr being the problem for the players.
