Big day of negotiations

Is The Glass Half Empty Or Half Full?

Some Late Night CBA Talk

This from Adrain Dater via sulia, NHLPA players told on conference call today that... ...while the talks were long yesterday, nobody can really say for sure if there was " real progress" or not until further talks are held and more specifics are discussed.

Travis Yost: And Down the Stretch They Come

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- The normally-dark tone omnipresent in previous CBA blog posts has waned over the past ten days, and for good reason.

Mike Augello: The Productive And Not So Productive

There is renewed optimism that talks between NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly and the NHLPA’s Steve Fehr over the weekend could lead towards an agreement that may have the NHL playing as soon as the end of November.
