NHL labor talks could be back on as early as this week after negotiations fell apart just a few days ago. Deputy commissioner Bill Daly tells The Associated Press he has been in contact with the players' association, and the sides are working on returning to the bargaining table. Daly says in an email on Sunday: ''Trying to set up something for this week, but nothing finalized yet.'' Talks broke down Thursday night after three straight days of talks at a New York hotel. Moments after players' association executive director Donald Fehr said he believed the sides were closing in on a deal to end the lockout, he was back at the podium to announce the NHL rejected the union's latest offer. Commissioner Gary Bettman followed him and angrily stated that the sides weren't close and added he didn't know why Fehr thought they were.

With the NHL most likely to cancel December's remaining games on Monday, let's just say that it's not a stunner that NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly offered the following lament to the Associated Press: NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said Friday that he is out of ideas on how to get negotiations back on track to save the hockey season. Talks fell apart on...

No new NHL labor talks scheduled

NEW YORK (AP) -- NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said Friday that he is out of ideas how to get negotiations back on track to save the hockey season.

No contact between sides in hockey fight

NEW YORK (AP) -- NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said Friday that he is out of ideas how to get negotiations back on track to save the hockey season.

Travis Yost: No Hills Left Worth Dying On

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- Deputy commissioner Bill Daly's latest take on contract length was rather amusing. After fighting a bloody war for hockey-related revenue ("HRR") clawbacks, ownership -- more or less -- received what they wanted on that major front. The NHLPA knew they'd have to accept a new collective bargaining agreement that puts HRR...

Bettman And Fehr, Read This Every Day Until We Have A CBA

Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal wrote this on December 6th, but it still holds true today and probably every day going forward until we have a new agreement. Lemme get this straight. The NHL’s second-in-command Bill Daly, normally a solid voice of reason, says term limits on contracts “are a hill to die on” in this nauseauting labour battle that is now in day 83....

Mike Augello: The Answer For The NHL’s “Fiscal Cliff”

After a weekend of relative silence on the collective bargaining front, the NHL announced this afternoon that they were canceling games up to December 30th, while at the same time rumors of a potential meeting between deputies Steve Fehr and Bill Daly someplace out of the watchful eye of the media began to percolate. In spite of the theatrics and bitterness of late last week,...

Thursday’s spectacle was just nuts, n-v-t-s nuts

Sportsnet's Michael Grange and the CBC's Elliotte Friedman posted late-night CBA negotiating insanity gems, but Yahoo Sports' Nicholas J. Cotsonika has taken the cake and then some for encapsulating Thursday's episode of Proskauer-Rose Shore in two simple, eloquent Tweets: Maybe the most bizarre day of my hockey writing career. Fehr misled us. Bettman went...

Schneider’s take on the league’s Fehr tactics

Immediately after the current lockout began, NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly and his NHLPA counterpart (albeit not in the collective bargaining department as he is not yet a sports labor lawyer), Mathieu Schneider, went on something of a sort of "charm offensives," chasing each other around the airwaves in the U.S. and Canada while stating and re-stating their respective...

Just Off Broadway

from Bruce Arthur of the National Post, Once you got past the burbling emotion of Gary Bettman’s aria in New York last week, which deputy commissioner Bill Daly occasionally turned into a duet, it was a rich tale in more ways than one. It was a tale of deceit and disingenuousness, of betrayal and intransigence, of villains and the gracious barons who are trying to reform them...
