NHL Lockout 2012: No Meetings Scheduled Tuesday, 4 Days Before CBA Expires

With a labor strike looming just four days away, there are no scheduled meetings on Tuesday between NHL owners and the Players Association, according to a report by Chris Johnston of The Canadian Press.

Johnston reported on Monday that negotiations were scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday in New York City, and that 250 players are expected to attend. Tuesday could just be a preparation day for what is sure to be two days of intense negotiating.

Nothing has suggested that the league and NHLPA are close to reaching a deal that would satisfy both parties. But there has to be productive interaction by Saturday if the lockout has any chance of being avoided.
