US Thanksgiving Hope for Talks

The NHLPA says it has come more than halfway to the owners' demands.   Now the Commissioner must respond.

Donald Fehr says the 2 sides in the NHL dispute have moved to within $200-million dollars over the 5-year length of the union offer.

Management and union will resume at 1PM, with hope that December cancellations of some games will not prevent movement towards a deal.

Outspoken agent Allan Walsh notes the gap is only $1.26 million per team per year.  

Given the NHL is coming off more than $3-billion in revenues last season, the cost of failing to make labour peace seem to outweigh the costs of scrapping an entire season.
