NHL talks continue, but results unknown
By TOM JONES
Published January 27, 2005
The NHL and the players' union aren't saying much publicly, but they continue to talk to one another in what could be the last-ditch effort to end the lockout and save the season.
The sides met again Wednesday in Toronto and said they expect to meet again today or Friday in New York. That's about all they said. The location of the meeting was secret, and the only comments to the media came through e-mails.
"The meeting has concluded for the day, and we will meet again this week," NHL chief legal officer Bill Daly said. Both sides seem set on keeping talks as private as possible.
"We have agreed to continue discussions," union senior director Ted Saskin said.
Before the meeting, both sides said they wouldn't make new proposals. The plan now appears to have both sides generating possible solutions through conversation, not formal proposals.
Like last week, commissioner Gary Bettman and union chief Bob Goodenow were not involved. Saskin, NHLPA president Trevor Linden and outside counsel John McCabridge represented the players. Daly, NHL board of governors chairman Harley Hotchkiss and outside counsel Bob Betterman represented the owners.
In addition, Devils general manager and CEO Lou Lamoriello joined the meeting at the union's request. Lamoriello, a member of the NHL's negotiating committee, is respected by the union and seen as someone who wants to make a deal.
Heatley deal likely
ATLANTA - Dany Heatley will resolve his vehicular homicide case before a scheduled trial Feb.7, said his lawyer, Ed Garland, who gave no details.
Heatley was indicted in July on vehicular homicide and five other charges related to a Sept.25, 2003, car crash that killed teammate Dan Snyder.
SEASON SUSPENSION: The Ontario Hockey League suspended Daniel Carcillo for the season for cross-checking a player in the face. He previously was suspended 15 games for a similar act.
