Donald Fehr is planning to address the media shortly. That does not mean the meeting tonight is over. No one has said that.

BEST OF MAXIM
from Kevin Allen of USA TODAY,
At best, an unidentified NHL official exercised poor judgment in accusing NHL Players Association executive director Donald Fehr of not fully informing his constituents of the NHL's offer.
At worst, owners are embracing a misguided, counter-productive strategy
Anyone who believes owners can bring about peace with players by trying to...
NEW YORK -- The NHL put the course of ongoing labor negotiations back in the hands of the players' association, and left union head Donald Fehr with "some things to consider" Friday night. The fourth straight day of negotiations provided few details, and the sides broke up in the early evening without knowing if they would reconvene later Friday, during the weekend...
NBC’s Pro Hockey Talk has obtained a copy of NHLPA head Donald Fehr’s memo to union members following Thursday’s CBA meetings in New York, the third consecutive day the two sides had met.
Unfortunately for players and fans, the letter, obtained by PHT from an unnamed NHL player, has a somewhat pessimistic tone and states “there is still a lot of work to be done.”
Last night the NHL and NHLPA met for the third consecutive day. Both Gary Bettman and Donald Fehr barely said anything to the media after yesterday's meeting. TSN obtained the memo that was sent to all of the players in the NHL after last night's meeting:
Today, we met with the NHL off and on over several hours. A number of matters were discussed, including our proposal...
NEW YORK -- The NHL and its players' union kept talking Wednesday, a day after they met for more than seven hours in an effort to end the nearly two-month-old hockey lockout. The sides negotiated on a new collective bargaining agreement past 10 p.m. Tuesday and immediately announced they would reconvene. They started up again at an undisclosed location, and were fully prepared...
NHL owners and players are back at the bargaining table for the second straight day.
The sides are talking at an undisclosed location, looking for a way to end the nearly two-month-old lockout.
The NHL and its players' association met for more than seven hours Tuesday in New York. Wednesday marked the 53rd day of the lockout. The sides are expected to discuss the ''...
from Scott Burnside of ESPN,
Neither NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman nor NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr has distinguished himself thus far in terms of charting a course to a successful resolution to the current lockout of the NHL’s players.
Strategies on both sides have been at best curious and at worst deeply flawed.
NEW YORK (AP) No one on either side of the NHL labor fight stormed out of the room, broke off negotiations, or made inflammatory remarks as they left the building.
Quite the contrary, actually.
While negotiators for the league and the union declined to say whether significant progress was made on Day 54 of the lockout, owners and players agreed to return to the bargaining table...
NEW YORK (AP) -- Negotiations between the NHL and the locked-out players' association ended after nearly six hours Wednesday. Just as they did a night earlier, the sides agreed to get right back to the bargaining table.
Representatives for the owners and players will resume talks Thursday, marking the third straight day they will meet face-to-face. NHL deputy commissioner Bill...
At long last, the National Hockey League owners and players seem to be working toward resolving their labor dispute.Both sides have quit spewing fan-alienating rhetoric. Both sides have already proven their resolve and suffered massive economic losses, so perhaps it is finally time to quit posturing and get down to business.The NHL has already reaffirmed its Garage League status...
