After commissioner Gary Bettman suggested that the NHL and NHLPA take a two-week break from CBA negotiations, the players wanted nothing to do with that.
Four days after Bettman’s idea was shot down, the two sides met on Monday in New York to rekindle talks in hope of salvaging some part of the 2012 season. The meeting lasted roughly two hours, and the two sides plan to meet again on Tuesday or Wednesday to continue discussions.
Paul Kelly phoned into NESN Daily on Monday night and talked with Jamison Coyle about the meeting, and the positive steps the two sides are taking in the most recent CBA talks to hopefully end the NHL lockout. Check out the video above to hear the full conversation between Kelly and Coyle.
