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,...

NHL, union remain apart on issues and in meetings

NEW YORK (AP) -- The NHL and the players' association met with federal mediators, not with each other, in the latest round of fruitless negotiations.

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...
