Second day of labour meetings end
Canadian Press
1/20/2005

TORONTO (CP) - The NHL's labour talks are stuck in a holding pattern.

Despite 9 1/2 hours of talks over two days, the season doesn't appear to be any closer to being saved.

''The differences of opinion remain, and they're differences that are strongly felt between the respective sides,'' Ted Saskin, senior director of the NHL Players' Association, said after Thursday's 4 1/2-hour meeting.

''There's certainly enough areas of disagreement between us that's certainly not allowing us to make much progress,'' he added.

Daly says whoops.

Sounds like Daly is now worried they've galvanized the NHLPA with their latest insults.

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story.asp?id=112455

With the season hanging in the balance, the NHL is reportedly hoping to meet with the NHL Players' Association again this week.

According to the Globe and Mail, NHL executive vice-president Bill Daly is anticipating more talks in the near future.


''I will be disappointed if we don't meet again this week to continue talks,'' Daly told the Globe and Mail."



So who is he trying to convince? The owners who aren't onboard with Bettman and his Hawk cabinet?

"The NHL has never needed Harley Hotchkiss more. The Flames co-owner and chairman of the league's board of governors must fill the leadership void left by Gary Bettman in the past months. Not just to save this NHL season, but to prevent a fatal fracture within the ownership of the league.

Since his clumsy, arrogant brushoff of the players' 24-per cent rollback offer in December, the commish has become increasingly bunkered down with the ownership hawks, cut off not just from the fans, but from the moderates in his league who worry that the NHL is spending currency it doesn't have with the public."

My favourite part of that article:

"How scary are the scenarios for the NHL if they don't play this season? Try this: on July 1, when about 60 percent of the players become free agents, an embittered Mike Ilitch of Detroit takes his revenge on the hardliners for killing the campaign by signing Sidney Crosby, Jarome Iginla and Vincent Lecavalier to personal services contracts.

With no CBA in place, Ilitch would be free to pluck any player he likes for his squad. Other dissatisfied owners in Colorado, Toronto and New York follow suit, inking Martin St. Louis, Miikka Kiprusoff, Rick Nash, Markus Naslund and Scott Niedermayer. Goodbye cost certainty. Goodbye competitive balance.

Want another scenario? If this season is cancelled, Nashville, Phoenix and Pittsburgh will be history almost immediately, with Tampa, Atlanta and possibly Anaheim not far behind.

The last part is my Fav as that is really what should be happening as part of making the future NHL stronger IMO

"Want another scenario? If this season is cancelled, Nashville, Phoenix and Pittsburgh will be history almost immediately, with Tampa, Atlanta and possibly Anaheim not far behind. Wait a minute . . . all those cities out of the NHL? That's a good thing. Never mind."
