NHL may try new tack in talks

The NHL Players Association is expected to offer several conditions which would lead to brass-free direct talks between the league’s owners and players in a bid to break Lockout III.

The union is said to be taking a ‘Why not?’ attitude rather than giving an enthusiastic endorsement of the concept.

Because of the vulnerable position such talks would put the union in, the Players Association will require the talks not be a negotiation, but rather a conversation in which participants can express themselves, The Post’s Larry Brooks has learned.

In addition, the union will insist the owners involved not include the four on the negotiating committee, led by Boston’s Jeremy Jacobs.

The union is expected to also insist the league have no say in designating which players attend the talks, a point the league is said to want.
