NHl talks hit a snag
A fourth straight day of NHL labour talks failed to bring the league and its locked-out players any closer to a deal that would put hockey back on the ice and save the season.
In fact, the gap between the fighting factions might even be wider. After three consecutive seemingly positive days of talks this week, discussions turned sour when negotiations ended for the night.
The union was under the impression the numbers suggested they were nearer to an agreement with the league. NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman disagreed.
There were disagreements at the end of the session, and the union team went back to its office to hold a conference call with the executive board and other players.
It remains to be seen if they'll meet this weekend.
