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...
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....
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,...
NEW YORK (AP) -- Federal mediators are still involved in hockey's labor talks, and the NHL and the players' association might soon be getting together again.
The sides met with mediators but not each other Wednesday. The mediators were back at it Thursday in an attempt to help broker a deal to save the season.

NEW YORK (AP) -- The NHL and the players' association met with federal mediators, not with each other, in the latest round of fruitless negotiations. The sides arrived at the same location Wednesday in suburban New Jersey, but never got into a room together. No apparent progress was made, and nothing appears to have been resolved. "There is no conclusion to this round...
NEW YORK (AP) 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...

NEW YORK (AP) A person familiar with the decision says the NHL has canceled all games through to Dec. 30.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the official announcement isn't expected to be made until later Monday. There had already been 422 regular-season games lost because of the ongoing lockout, and the latest cuts will claim 104 more. The NHL also has canceled...

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...
If there is going to be an NHL season, it won't happen before New Year's Eve.
The NHL announced Monday that all games have been canceled through Dec. 30. There had already been 422 regular-season games lost through Dec. 14 because of the lockout, and the latest cuts on Day 86 of the league shutdown claimed 104 more. The NHL also has called off the New Year's Day Winter...
