NHL Labor Optimism Iced
The NHL has rejected the players’ latest offer for a labor deal, and negotiations have broken off at least until the weekend. The talks broke off after just one hour Thursday night.
After several hours of waiting for discussions to resume for a third straight day, the conversations didn’t go well and had none of the momentum that existed Tuesday and Wednesday. Instead of closing in on a deal, the two sides seem further apart than ever.
NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman says he is “disappointed beyond belief.”
Union chief Donald Fehr Â says it doesn’t look like this will be resolved “in the immediate future.”
Today is the 83rd day of the NHL lockout. Â Another round of games could be cancelled today. The league has already cancelled the NHL All Star Game which was slated to be played at Nationwide Arena.
