NHL labor talks have resumed, with both sides still focusing on secondary matters and not the core economic issues that continue to divide owners and players in a league-imposed lockout.

Now, in its third week, the lockout has wiped out the entire preseason and has forced many players to head overseas to play on month-to-month contracts. Others who are eligible to play at the lower levels opened training camp last week with American Hockey League affiliates. Depending on the progress of the talks, the next step could come this week, when the NHL may announce the postponement of the start of the regular season, which was scheduled to open on Oct. 11.

Peter Tessier: We Have a Tie!

It was close and it brought out emotion but in the end nothing was decided- the people could not reach consensus. The history of the Winnipeg Jets is split between "all of it" and "from the Thrashers on". So what is a guy to do?
