PLAYERS: Donald Fehr
After another long day of CBA negotiations with federal mediators, Joe Yerdon at Pro Hockey Talk reports that the NHL and NHLPA are no closer to striking a deal says NHLPA Executive Director Donald Fehr... “There were discussions of the various issues involved and how far apart we are and where we go from here. I can’t tell you that any progress was made.” ...as much as I've tried to keep my expectations in check about a potential deal, I really didn't think these guys were dumb enough to lose another season. They literally have the future of the NHL in their hands and instead of trying do to whatever they can to insure its stability, they've decided to destroy it. Not sure how the league can comeback after this debacle. No further meetings have been scheduled at this time. Remember to follow me on Twitter & Facebook or e-mail me at nyrfan94@yahoo.com.
