Daly responds to end of federal mediation

  Federal Mediation between the NHL and NHLPA concluded yesterday. It didn't go well. No ground was made. "I'm really surprised federal mediation didn't work," said no one ever. Anyways here's Bill Daily's response:   NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly issued the following statement regarding the two days of meetings that concluded...

NHL, NHLPA Can’t Make Much Ground With Mediators, Might Look at Other Ways to Make Progress

The NHL and NHLPA met on Wednesday and again on Thursday, but this time with federal mediators in an attempt to use a third party to alleviate the differences to end the ongoing feud between the players and owners. And after two days of meeting with representatives from the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Services, NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly left Thursday’s meetings with...

NHL, union back to bargaining with mediators

Whether federal mediators will provide enough help to end the NHL lockout in time to save the hockey season is still unknown. At least they had a good first day. Negotiators from the NHL and the players' association returned to the bargaining table Wednesday for the first time in a week and the first time with outside voices contributing to the talks. The location was secret...

Jamison has Coyotes' saga nearing an end

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- The Phoenix Coyotes have taken a major step toward securing an owner. All that's left is one last hurdle. Glendale's City Council voted late Tuesday night in favor of a reworked 320 million arena management deal with Greg Jamison, clearing the way for the former San Jose Sharks CEO to complete his purchase of the team from the NHL. "The affirmative...

The doomsday clock continues to tick toward the inevitable cancelation of the 12-13 season

I see that the lockout doomsday clock now reads 11:50 PM. After the Board of Governors meet to tacitly approve the cancelation of the 2012-2013 season, some progress may be made in a last-ditch effort to save the season... But I doubt much will get done until the last bit of leverage Gary Bettman, Bill Daly and the Board can take off the negotiating table is gone, and we're...

Federal Mediators Called in for Lockout Duty

Seems like things are finally getting serious in the NHL negotiations, folks – the NHL and the NHLPA have agreed to meet with federal mediators to help with the negotiation process towards a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. "We are able to confirm that we have agreed to a request by the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service to engage in meetings with the Union...

Mediators fail to help in NHL labor fight

NEW YORK (AP) -- If the NHL and the players' association are going to make a deal to save the hockey season, they are likely going to have to do it by themselves. A pair of federal mediators tried to help for two days, but even they couldn't bring the fighting sides closer to a compromise. "After spending several hours with both sides over two days, the presiding mediators...

Mediators fail to help in NHL labor fight

NEW YORK (AP) The NHL, the players' association and now even federal mediators agree on one thing: The bickering sides are nowhere near a deal that would put hockey back on the ice. The league and the union wrapped up two days of talks Thursday in New Jersey, with help from mediators, but moved no closer to a solution to save the season that has already been delayed and shortened...

Mediators Conclude There's No Hope

After a second straight day of federal mediators presiding over CBA discussions, we're no closer to a deal getting done than we were in August. In fact the mediators seem to have thrown their hands up the way fans have. Here's NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly... "Today, we concluded two days of mediation with FMCS mediators and representatives of the NHL Players...
