(One reason for the short meeting is that Fehr is hosting NHLPA regional player meeting this afternoon.)

The only good thing is that further (economic) discussions are scheduled for next week (in NYC).

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and deputy commissioner Bill Daly will sit down with players' association executive director Donald Fehr and his brother Steve Fehr, the union's No. 2 man, in a small group session Tuesday.

Economic issues will be the main topic of conversation as a wide financial gap remains between the two sides.

Bettman says no progress can be made until those "fundamental economic issues" are solved.

Fehr says he remains optimistic there is enough time if there is a "mutual will" to get a deal done before the current collective agreement expires on Sept. 15.
