Bill Daly said the issues discussed this weekend were discussed last in 2004-05. They were discussed in July 2005. Chris Johnston of the CP spoke to a veteran labor negotiator last week who said the NHL and NHLPA are discussing these issues now so they can begin the season when they hammer out the economic and systems issues. Even Daly said the weekend issues need to be addressed before a new CBA is done.

The NHL will probably cancel the start of the season games in a few days. Its still possible to play all 82 games if they can get a deal done later this week or early next week. 10 day camp. Scratch the ASG in Columbus. That saves a week. Add 1 or 2 weeks to the regular season. Kevin Allen of USA Today reported last week the players feel they need 7-9 days to get ready.
