NHL lockout 2012: No progress noted between NHL and NHLPA

The NHL and NHLPA met on Wednesday on two separate sessions, yet no significant progress was noted as neither side chose to discuss the key economic issues at the heart of the lockout.

While Donald Fehr, Gary Bettman and Bill Daly met briefly this morning, none of the three were present during the afternoon negotiations. With Steve Fehr leading the NHLPA, along with several player representatives, the two sides discussed further health and safety issues as well as improving ice conditions.

Earlier Wednesday, the Alberta Labour Relations Board had ruled that no decision could be made against the NHL, as the NHLPA sought to block the lockout of players under contract to the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers.

Per TSN's Darren Dreger: "I'm told Alberta Labour board viewed this case as a distraction to ongoing negotiations."

Neither the NHL nor the NHLPA has made an actual proposal since the lockout began on Sept. 15, with both sides refusing to be the first to budge on the core economics that led to the work stoppage.

The NHL has canceled the NHL schedule through the end of October, with further cancellations expected soon.
