Daly was interviewed on Sportsnet the other day and it didn’t sound promising. He began by saying the season wasn’t yet over and there was hope but then quite clearly listed off a number of issues that separated the two sides and also what the NHL has conceded (when compared to the old CBA). Daly expects the players to unanimously agree to the “disclaimer of interest” and didn’t say much more on the subject. When asked what he perceived to be Fehr’s ultimate goal in all this, he simply said he had no idea and that question would have to be answered by Fehr himself. He then summarized by generalizing that the NHLPA are still attempting an end around and ending back at, or very close, to that 57 percent number.
Though Daly attempted to keep the interview as upbeat as he could, it is obvious that the chances of a deal being struck by mid January is slim to none.
