NEW YORK (AP) -- NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman still hasn't spoken to players' union chief Donald Fehr since a brief meeting Wednesday, but negotiators on both sides are back in contact as the lockout drags on. There was no meeting Friday, after two straight days of negotiations at the league's New York office, and there are no current plans for more bargaining to take place. "We've talked. There is nothing scheduled," NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly told The Associated Press in an email. Frustration is building on both sides as the lockout approaches its fifth week. The first regular-season games were missed Thursday night -- one week after the first 82 contests were wiped out -- and Staples Center in Los Angeles will have to wait for the Kings' Stanley Cup championship banner to be raised to the rafters. The Kings were supposed to honor their first title-winning club Friday night before hosting the New York Rangers. All games through Oct. 24 have been called off, and more cuts are expected soon with no new labor deal in sight.

Does Brian Burke Know Something Others Don’t?

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, In the most inactive summer of Brian Burke’s time running the Maple Leafs, you have to wonder: What did his friend, Gary Bettman, tell him about the coming season? And can Burke’s quiet approach to making over the Leafs be attributed in any way to a belief there will not be an NHL season? Burke never went out an acquired the...

Travis Yost: What if Gary Bettman and Donald Fehr Negotiated My Car Purchase?

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- Finding the positives in lockout coverage is quite the feat. Financially adverse to both parties involved, I find it difficult at times to sit empathetic with either the ownership or union in this matter. Still, the goal in my blog posts isn't just to provide coverage of the ugliest period in the National Hockey League since 2004-2005...

We Need Hope and Change - Bringing The Hate Part IV

  Spurred on by a kick-a$$ movie poster by Josh Howard, this is part four of a four part series showcasing our feelings on Bettman and the NHL.     By Sully:   Gary Bettman first came into the NHL the same year the Toronto Blue Jays won a World Series (only year the United States didn’t win the World Series, if you can believe it), when Disney’s Aladdin came...

Which NHL veterans will be hurt by the lockout most?

NHL, union slated for 2nd straight day of talks

NEW YORK (AP) -- At least they are still talking. That seemed to be the best thing that could be said on Wednesday after the NHL and the players' association met for about five hours on the first of at least two straight days of talks in an effort to work out a deal to end the monthlong lockout. Although it has been a week since the NHL called off the first two weeks of the regular...
