Tampa Bay Lightning star Marty St. Louis said he is "baffled" by the state of negotiations between the Players' Association and league on a new collective bargaining agreement.

"Do the math," he said about the union's last proposal that has the sides $182 million apart over a five-year deal. "Thirty teams, it's not that much."
Added captain Vinny Lecavalier: "For everything we've offered and how proactive we've been, it's the opposite for (the league). It's like negotiating with nobody. ... But I still think with everything we've offered and everything we've done, it would be ridiculous not to start the season."
In the meantime, St. Louis, Lecavalier and a small group of teammates (Stamkos pops in from time to time) will continue skating three times a week at the Ice Sports Forum in Brandon, on Monday in front of three fans.

"I'm trying to entertain a few people," St. Louis said and added with a laugh, "our season ticket holders." Bottom line, he said of the workouts, "This is better than nothing."
