Donald Fehr and Gary Bettman may not have been present but according to Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly and Steve Fehr of the NHLPA, Tuesday’s meetings in New York regarding the NHL lockout did provide some optimism.
Fehr called the talks “constructive” and even called Tuesday “the best day we’ve had,” and Daly reinforced that both sides are “going to work hard and try to get a deal.”
On the players’ side notable names including Sidney Crosby, Martin St. Louis and Jonathan Toews were in attendance.
This could be (and most likely is in my humble opinion) just fluff to help generate some good vibes, or it could be the start of a positive trend towards maybe, just maybe getting closer to ending this thing.
Until both top dogs get back into the picture, it’s still looking bleak for the 2012-13 NHL season.
But again what do you guys think?
