NHLPA To Hold Meetings In New York, 250 Players Expected To Attend

The NHL Players' Association will hold meetings on Wednesday and Thursday in New York City, with 250 players expected to be in attendance, according to The Canadian Press' Chris Johnston.

With the league-imposed Sept. 15 deadline lingering on the horizon, things have become quite intense between the NHL, who isn't concerned with possible legal implications that could result from a lockout, and the NHLPA. That's likely to be a major topic of discussion for the players, some of whom filed a cease-and-desist order on Friday due to the impending violation of Quebec's labor laws.

Meanwhile, there has been rampant finger-pointing between the league and its players as both sides attempt to pressure each other into negotiating a deal. However, if talks continue to stall, the NHL will be staring at its third work-stoppage in less than a decade.
