NHL, NHLPA Set To Resume CBA Talks

The NHL and the Players Association are set to resume CBA talks, according to a Tweet from Chris Johnson of The Canadian Press.

Johnson also spoke to NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly. When asked about a Sept. 21 start date for training camps, Daly said "I think it's becoming unlikely."

Despite the willingness to restart talks, a new collective bargaining agreement is likely still some time coming. Daly's statement seems to be something of an understatement; signs have increasingly pointed towards a lockout, including a memo from the Players Association preparing players for a lockout and acknowledgements from NHL teams that a lockout is likely.
