NHL, players move closer as talks continue
(MCT) — NEW YORK — A long day of negotiations between players and owners and a meeting of the NHL’s Board of Governors on Wednesday produced an agreement on how to split one kind of pie: the thin-crust pizza delivered to hungry reporters at about 11 p.m. by Steve Fehr, special counsel to the NHL Players’ Association.
How they will split the financial pie remains in dispute, but people familiar with the discussions said the talks had gained traction through earnest efforts by both sides. However, a new collective bargaining agreement had not been forged after players and owners met separately and jointly over about 10 hours at a Manhattan hotel, breaking up about 1 a.m. Eastern time.
