A fourth straight day of NHL labor talks failed to bring the league and its locked-out players any closer to a deal that would put hockey back on the ice and save the season.
In fact, the gap between the fighting factions might have gotten even wider on a failed Friday.
After three consecutive seemingly positive days of talks this week, discussions turned a bit sour when negotiations ended for the night. The union was under the impression the numbers suggested they were nearer to an agreement with the league. NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman disagreed.
''Gary made a comment (Thursday) that there is still a lot of work to do. I think, given today's session, there is still a lot of work to do,'' Fehr said.

Lockout Update: Four days of consecutive talks, WOW!! Is a brink coming or has the National Hockey league given up on all the lost revenue. The NHL is finally letting the players speak. Gary Bettman has led the NHL to three lockouts in18 years. Is it all entirely Mr. Bettmans fault? What’s more soothing then
from Scott Burnside of ESPN,
Neither NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman nor NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr has distinguished himself thus far in terms of charting a course to a successful resolution to the current lockout of the NHL’s players.
Strategies on both sides have been at best curious and at worst deeply flawed.
The best that can be said about the ongoing NHL labor negotiations is that they are still going, and will continue for at least a fourth straight day.
The league and the locked-out players' association got back together Thursday and accomplished enough over five-plus hours to make plans to meet again Friday.
