Unless one side has a sudden change of heart, it appears collective bargaining agreement discussions between the NHL and the NHL Players' Association have reached a stalemate.

No meetings are scheduled and it doesn't appear as if there will be any scheduled in the immediate future.

NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly sees little reason to continue negotiations based on the Players' Association's recent stance.

"They have made it clear to us that they have very little interest in the proposal we made last Tuesday," said Daly. "They also told us they have no intention of making a new proposal. I'm not sure what we would be meeting about."

When asked if the negotiations may slip into a deep freeze, Daly responded in a brief but very telling manner. "I suspect so," he said. "Back to the drawing board. Unfortunate."

NHLPA counsel Steve Fehr responded to the league's comments.

"The league is apparently unwilling to meet," said Fehr. "That is unfortunate, as it is hard to make progress without talking."

Late Tuesday afternoon, the NHLPA conducted a conference call for executive board members and according to a union spokesman, following the call, the players informed the NHL they are willing to meet at any point, without preconditions, to try and reach an agreement.

Hey! I have an idea.... Let's just cancel the season and when next year rolls around, none of the fans show up for next season!! IF there is a next season. Should get the point across.

I have a better idea, tell the NHLPA to go pound salt, hire replacement players and move on. I am sure other players will abandon the NHLPA once they realize they have no paycheck coming in and cannot get work in Europe, Russia, etc.

Don Fear is killing hockey! The players need to wise up. Must be nice to make millions so when you go on strike you still have money to live on, but it will not last forever.

Sorry. Must be my fault. I really got into hockey during the last playoffs and now fully understand the rules so I can keep up with the action. Now that I was looking forward to watching my first full season of hockey, this happens. Sorry about that.

We can't blame you, we have to blame the millionaires and billionaires fighting over their share and being unwilling to compromise.
