NHL Labor Talks Resume 06 Nov 12

Talks between the NHL and the Players’ Association will resume Tuesday in New York. The two sides met over the weekend at an undisclosed location and reportedly made progress towards a new collective bargaining agreement. Representatives from both sides are referring to Tuesday’s talks as “make-or-break” type negotiations. The current labor dispute has already cost the league a chance at a full 82-game season as games have been canceled through the end of November. The league also cancelled the January 1st Winter Classic late last week. The optimism over the weekend has led many to believe a shortened 64-game schedule could be on the horizon.
