Parts of both sides of the NHL lockout conflict are meeting tomorrow in New York without Donald Fehr or Gary Bettman.
The announced owners in attendance: Jeff Vinik of the Tampa Bay Lightning, Ron Burkle of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Mark Chipman of the Winnipeg Jets, Murray Edwards of the Calgary Flames, Jeremy Jacobs of the Boston Bruins, Larry Tanenbaum of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Fehr said some of the owners listed had yet to attend any previous meetings and that their presence would help continue discussion and hopefully make more headway.
“We hope that this meeting will be constructive and lead to a dialogue that will help us find a way to reach an agreement.”
Just as a discussion topic:
What do you hope tomorrow will accomplish?
With both top dogs not even in the building what do you think will actually get accomplished tomorrow, if anything at all?
