The NHL and the union are coming to the table again. The negotiating teams for both sides convened for a half hour until before adjourned. The meeting took place at 9 p.m. E.T. Ira Podell of the Associated Press files this report.
The timeline breaks down something like this: Late last week, the league made an offer. On Monday, it was the players' association countering with its own proposal. After the NHL reviewed the document on Monday night, they came back with another counter offer. The union reviewed it and the sides are prepared to meet again on Wednesday. The current issues appear to be circulating around revenue sharing and pensions.
The meetings had been taking place all day Tuesday via conference call before the official meeting on Tuesday. The process figures to be ongoing and it's unclear if any deal is close to being made here, but it has to be a good sign that both sides are talking to each other.
