NHL CBA Talks Pick Back Up Friday With Informal Meeting

The NHL and representatives from the players' association met on Friday at the NHL's offices in New York. The meeting was an informal one between NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr, his assistant Steve Fehr, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and deputy commissioner Bill Daly.

Donald Fehr said he expects the discussions to resume officially between the league and the players' association, but also that nothing has been determined yet. The NHL is threatening to lock out the players if a new collective bargaining agreement is not signed by Sept. 15.

The NHL has had three labor disputes since 1992, with two of them ending in lockouts (1994-95, 2004-05). The league is asking the players to take a reduction in their share of revenues along with accepting limits on free agency and an end to salary arbitration.
