League is looking into legal options against the NHLPA for (NHL claims "unreasonably") witholding consent.

Plus some tweets from LeBrun:

NHLPA says it was willing to continue to talk this through but league had imposed deadline today... So union said No to plan

Real_ESPNLeBrun
League needed deadline because schedule maker has to get going next year's sked

NHLPA says extra travel was major concern as well as playoff structure.... Union says it consulted with players on conf calls ...

Bottom line here, folks, the rhetoric and gamesmanship in next labor talks has begun
