Not much information was given to the media, other than NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly and NHLPA Special Counsel Steve Fehr both saying that they were pleased with the way talks had been moving along.
NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, who was not a part of the owners and players meeting, was also mum following the Board of Governors meeting, only saying that he too was pleased with the way talks were ongoing.
So far, signs have been encouraging. Fans can only hope that both sides continue on as long as they did yesterday.
A few tidbits from the meetings:
- A report had also surfaced that when a deal was struck, the regular season would begin December 20. Between 50 and 60 games would make up the regular season schedule.
- Both sides have been meeting internally amongst themselves, Renaud Lavoie of RDS reports.
- BREAKING: TSN's Aaron Ward tweeted that the NHLPA presented the NHL with a proposal following the Board of Governors meeting. Yahoo's Nick Cotsonika reports that the owners are meeting to discuss it.
