The next day scheduled for negotiations is tomorrow but, according to TSN’s Aaron Ward, this afternoon the NHLPA has scheduled a conference call at 4 pm between the Executive Board and the Negotiating Committee.
Talks seem to be gaining some steam but exactly how much is still unclear. The progress, how large or small, is promising given the fact that many (myself included) had the season on life support last week following the cancellation of the 2013 Winter Classic. The picture should be clearer later this week about the realistic possibility of a shortened NHL season.
